Church Development Committee

The Church Development Committee oversees and supports new church developments, fellowships, new worshipping communities, and other partnerships created by the Presbytery.

This committee also recommends to the Presbytery Council the establishment of new church developments. All such recommendations must include a plan for financial support and ministry goals.
