How to change ssh port number when installed through MacPorts?

I have OpenSSH installed via MacPorts on a macOS 10.14 system. I want to change the port its listening on to something other than 22, and have changed /opt/local/etc/ssh/ssh_config and uncommented the Port line like so:

Host *
  Port 12345

I then restarted OpenSSH with:

sudo port unload openssh
sudo port load openssh

However I can still only connect on port 22. How do I change the port properly?
