The Commission on Ministry (COM) members are often the “face” of the Presbytery. They support the ministry and vitality of our congregations.
COM members assist congregations in times of pastoral transition, call processes, and conflict resolution. This group of servants works to help pastors through personal crisis, financial need and Board of Pension questions. They also offer periodic boundary training.
This Committee nominates all officers of presbytery, members including chairpersons of committees and teams, and commissioners and youth advisory delegates to Synod and General Assembly.
Commission on Preparation for Ministry
This Commission oversees the process by which individuals prepare to be ordained as teaching elders or to be certified as Certified Christian Educators and enroll inquirers. They also oversee the process by which individuals prepare themselves for service as Commissioned Ruling Elders (CRE).
