Presbytery Relocation Proposal

At the 177th Stated Meeting on June 13, 2017, the Presbytery Trustees put forward a recommendation to sell the present Presbytery office condominium in Eastdale Plaza, Iowa City. The body approved this motion, based upon the stewardship principle that Presbytery offices and meetings should be located within our churches, with the understanding that the Trustees would share with churches the requirements for a workspace for the Stated Clerk and Treasurer along with a space to house Presbytery files.

The intention underlying this move is to mark the fact that the Presbytery is composed of its member churches and to allow the Presbytery to operate as virtually and flexibly as possible. The Presbytery requests use of the space as exclusive office space with negotiated compensation to the church for use of the facilities for a minimum of five years.
