Commission on Ministry

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.
