Grace Presbytery » Nominating Committee

Nominating Committee

As Presbyterians, we believe that the church of Jesus Christ is larger than any one congregation. One of the ways we embody this conviction is through the life of the larger Presbyterian family: the presbytery, the synod, and the General Assembly.

Every year, Grace Presbytery involves people together in ministry through committee work at the presbytery level. Grace Presbytery has many committees on which to serve as you hear a call from God to do so.

Please take a look at different ministry areas where you have interest in serving by reading the Standing Rules and Manual of Administrative Operations.

Instructions: To suggest your name or someone else for service in Grace Presbytery, please use the form linked below.

The nomination form has three sections: Nominee’s information, Committee Choices, and Nominated by. Click on the gray box to reveal each section of the 3-part form.

Self-nominations are encouraged.

Begin the process: HERE.

The Nominating Committee will nominate for election by Grace Presbytery:

1. Presbytery Moderator, Vice Moderator, Stated Clerk, and Treasurer for one-year terms

2. members to fill new classes on presbytery committees, commissions, and the Presbytery Council giving consideration to the particular skills, abilities, interests, and experiences needed.

When making nominations, the committee will insure the following principles are followed:

1. representation of the broad theological, cultural, racial, geographical, and generational diversity of the presbytery

2. competence of nominees in their area of service

3. willingness of nominees to work in a collaborative and collegial manner

4. commitment of nominees to the inclusiveness and diversity of the presbytery, and

5. commitment of nominees to the mission of Grace Presbytery and the Presbyterian Church(USA)
