Coordinating Council

The Coordinating Council serves as the presbytery’s planning and visionary group, which listens and responds to congregational needs. The major focus of the council’s work is to:

manage the design and plans of the presbytery, adhering to the mission statement and the three guiding principles of the presbytery;

develop strategies for regularly and effectively communicating presbytery’s vision and mission to the congregations;

appoint task forces, ad hoc committees and teams as necessary to carry out presbytery decisions, policies and strategies (such as presbytery-wide ministry initiatives); and

communicate with congregations and offer a variety of networking opportunities to address needs, in coordination with the strengthening our congregations committee.

Our Executive Presbyter Mark Englund-Krieger serves as Moderator of the Coordinating Council.
