The Nominating Committee nominates teaching elders and ruling elders in the presbytery to serve standing committees, and also recommends to Council new members for presbytery working groups.
Currently, membership on most standing committees requires ordination (as either a ruling or a teaching elder); members of Working Groups can be members of congregations as well as officers.
All the work of the presbytery, in supporting minister members and congregational ministry, is done through committees and working groups. Their responsibilities and current meeting times are shown here. We together are the presbytery; and San Francisco Presbytery has a place to use your gifts!
Service on presbytery committees will help you
- Learn about neighboring churches and their challenges and best practices
- Meet fellow Presbyterians you’ll be glad to know
- Get to know, work with, and value people with whom you may not always agree
- Serve Christ’s church beyond your own congregation
To suggest someone for service – or to nominate yourself! – please contact committee chair Pam Byers, elder at Old First, San Francisco . Or complete and return this Nominating Form.
