Open Space Groups Notes

Request to host “Open Space Discussion” group

Open Space is a large group process in which “space” is provided for people to gather around ministry topics for discussion, collaboration, networking, and information sharing.  The heart of Open Space is a belief that there is a passion amongst the Presbytery for our shared ministries; those ministries that currently exist, and those yet to be discovered.  Have a topic you want to explored during Open Space? You can request space for a future Presbytery gathering on the Presbytery’s website or suggest a topic at the beginning of any Open Space session.  Any Teaching Elder in good standing with the Presbytery, Commissioned Ruling Elder or Ruling Elder Commissioner to Presbytery will be granted their request to host a topic so long as – 1. A moderator for the discussion is identified and 2. There is a recorder (not the moderator) to take notes and submit the notes in electronic form to the Presbytery Office.  You can direct any questions you have about the Open Space gatherings to the Strategic Team chaired by Matt McNelly of Pullman – [email protected].

If you would like to ask for time to host a group during the Open Space Discussion time at the Presbytery gathering, please e-mail Katie at [email protected].
