Update on the Search for a new Executive Presbyter
The Presbytery Council, Presbytery Future Committee, and the Executive Presbyter Nominating Committee met this week and work is moving ahead on the succession plan to find the next Executive Presbyter for Shenango Presbytery. You will be receiving a letter from Jim Mohr, moderator of Council, in a couple of weeks. This is to alert you to a survey that will be conducted from January 6-24. It will require the response of session members, ministers, and commissioned ruling elders. Jim’s letter will contain details. All pastors and clerks have been asked for an email list of their elders.
