The Council is the “steward” of the Presbytery, ensuring that our values are preserved and responsibilities carried out.
The Council functions like a congregational Session.
Council coordinates its work through three teams:
Strategic Coordinating Team (SCT) – Directs us on how to do our mission effectively.
Generative Catalyst Team (GCT) – Views the Presbytery from the perspective of “the balcony”, bringing regular reports to the Presbytery Gatherings and raising challenges and opportunities.
Administrative – Oversees the resources and assets of the Presbytery. Committees include: Presbytery Gathering Team (PGT), Staff Relations and Trustees.
The following teams report directly to the Presbytery:
Committee on Ministry (COM)
Committee on Preparation for Ministry (CPM)
Permanent Judicial Committee (PJC)
Sexual Misconduct Response Team (SMRT)
