Grand Canyon Committees
Presbytery of Grand Canyon
Commission on Ministry
The Commission on Ministry provides oversight of the relationships between ministers and congregations and between ministers and the Presbytery of Grand Canyon. When congregations face challenges, the Commission is able to provide guidance regarding leadership changes or filling of vacancies.
The Congregational Resourcing Team (CRT) provides resources to congregations, new worshiping communities, the organizations and missions the PGC partners with, through grant opportunities, ongoing education and guidance throughout the Presbytery as a whole. Recognizing that, we work together better to continue Jesus Christ’s mission.
It is the responsibility of the Leadership Team to reflect on the whole of Presbytery’s life; plan the Presbytery meetings; reflect on, evaluate and add focus to the core values and mission directions; oversee ministry exploration through the mission teams, and to award mission initiative grants. It is comprised of 12 members with the Presbytery Pastor, Stated Clerk, Moderator and Moderator elect participating as ex-officio members.
The Operations Committee oversees the administration of the Presbytery as an organization. It is responsible for Personnel, Nominations, Minutes, Representation and Communications.
Permanent Judicial Commission
The Permanent Judicial Commission exercises the judicial functions of the Presbytery.
