Committee on Ministry
The COM is a unique team within the presbytery charged with stimulating, nurturing, and empowering the wellness and effectiveness of our pastors and congregations.
The COM’s oversight and resources through its Cluster Liaisons will help bring new, transformative, and transforming ministries within our bounds. The COM’s tasks and responsibilities, all of which are important and some of which can be quite difficult, should be upheld with prayer. As partners in ministry, COM members enter into relationships with an attitude of respect and appreciation for the congregations and individuals they encounter, and they maintain the highest standards of ethics. The COM will bring pastoral sensitivity, hopeful faith, and openness to the surprises of God’s transforming power at work for the sake of the whole church.
