Our Vision

Grounded in the biblical image for human community, as disciples of Jesus, 
following His witness and command for His church,
guided by the principles of trust, open communication, and genuine relationships, 
we will challenge and support our congregations to be thriving faith communities by 
     providing competent pastoral leadership,
     resourcing to energize ministry, and
     developing networks and partnerships of Presbyterians.
