The Presbytery Council, the Presbytery Future Committee, and the Executive Presbyter Nominating Committee held a retreat at Villa Maria Conference Center on November 15-16 under the leadership of Russ Crabtree. Russ is a consultant with Holy Cow Consulting! with which the Presbytery Council has a contract (with the bulk of the financial obligation coming from the Synod of the Trinity) to provide succession planning support for our search for our next presbytery executive.
At the “foundations retreat” the 25 attendees reviewed the process for this change and identified questions to be answered and a process for collecting information and moving forward with the necessary decisions. At a second “recommendations retreat” on February 7-8 decisions will be finalized on how to proceed.
