Presbytery Coordinating Commission


The PCC functions as the strategic leadership team that coordinates the ministry and mission for the Presbytery. This team is comprised of a teaching and ruling elder (one of which is the moderator) from each standing team and the Presbytery officers.

The PCC does not make decisions as or for the Presbytery, but rather brings all recommendations and motions to the full governing body at stated or called Presbytery meetings. The entire governing body makes the decisions and commissioners can then report these decisions to their home churches. The PCC membership is comprised of elected moderators and one other team member of alternate ordination. This structure is intentional, so that the work of these groups may be directly shared and coordinated.

The PCC membership consists of the constitutional officers—the Co-Moderators and Stated Clerk—and other team representatives. 

The Presbytery Co-Moderators alternate moderating the PCC during her or his term of office. Currently a former Presbytery Moderator serves as the Immediate Past Moderator for 2019. The Stated Clerk serves as PCC secretary.

The PCC meets monthly on Thursdays at 10 am.  Check the Presbytery Calendar for specific meeting days.

The PCC is commissioned (authorized by the body) to carry out aspects of the Presbytery’s work in the following ways.

▪ Coordinate initiatives and activities among committees according to Presbytery strategic plan

▪ Work with the Committee on Leadership Development to develop and implement regular plans for growth in leadership skills for those serving in various capacities within the Presbytery, including an annual retreat to train Presbytery leaders

▪ Work with all committees to develop opportunities to work cooperatively with other presbyteries and ecumenical entities to fulfill their particular responsibilities

 ▪ In partnership with Stated Clerk:

  • coordinate agenda for business meetings of the Presbytery
  • facilitate planning for education and spiritual growth meetings of the Presbytery
  • propose a schedule (dates, times, & locations) for meetings of the Presbytery
  • call special meetings of the Presbytery when appropriate
  • communicate regularly with all committees to assure that work is done in a timely manner
