An invitation for church members to partner with the Presbytery as we…
WALK ALONGSIDE OUR CONGREGATIONS in joys, struggles, transitions, seasons of discernment, conflict management, and missional aspirations. This has been especially critical in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. Per Capita dollars make possible the ministry of the Presbytery Leadership Collegium and Commission on Ministry.
EQUIP AND EMPOWER CHURCH LEADERS to serve our congregations and communities with intentionality, generosity, and creativity. Per Capita dollars make possible the Commission on Preparation for Ministry and Membership as we walk alongside candidates for ordination, receive new Ministers of Word and Sacrament, and equip Elders for service in our churches.
FACILITATE A NETWORK OF TRUST AND ACCOUNTABILITY through the ecclesiastical Offices of the Stated Clerk, treasurers, and accountants at all levels of our denomination. Per Capita dollars enable our leadership to maintain records and assure responsibility and compliance alongside the broader Body of Christ and Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
LAUNCH AND LEVERAGE NEW POSSIBILITIES as we engage our neighbors and communities with the good news of Jesus Christ. Per Capita dollars pay for essential leadership catalysts, managed by staff who oversee grant programs; support creative ministry initiatives through the work of Commission on Resources and Creative Ministries; and sustain the Ministry and Leadership Incubator – our equipping program that partners with seminarians in church revitalization. Per Capita also leverages equipping events like Fall Fest, Clerks Round Tables, and Ecumenical Equipping Events.
TELL THE STORY AND GATHER THE FAITHFUL through the hosting of various meetings of Presbytery leadership commissions, committees, and mission groups. Per Capita dollars also make possible various publications, website and social media management, podcast hosting, critical record keeping of our churches, and the work of the Presbyterian Historical Society located in Center City, Philadelphia.
