At the present time your Nominating Committee is hard at work on filling the current thirty-four vacancies on the Presbytery’s various teams, committees, and commissions as well as finding representatives to related entities.
In the weeks and months ahead, you will be hearing more from us in terms of the specifics of our progress in addressing this challenge. As our Standing Rules state, “The Nominating Committee shall nominate for the Presbytery’s election the Moderator-Elect, Commissioners to Synod, and members of the following: Committee on Ministry, Committee on Preparation for Ministry, Council, Permanent Judicial Commission, Strategic Coordinating Team, Trustees, and the Sexual Misconduct Response Team…and such program, mission, and administrative groups as the presbytery shall from time to time determine are necessary to carry out its vision for mission and the requirements of the Form of Government.”
The words “Vision” and “Mission” stand out. Our prayer is that you will consider where you may be called to serve and be receptive to invitations to join in the work of supporting and encouraging “flourishing congregations and partnerships that joyfully participate in God’s redemptive work through Jesus Christ in the world.” We invite you to contact us for further information and/or to express your interest in serving. You can email committee moderator Gary Mills.
