Committees

Our Presbytery is actively involved in serving Christ and advancing his kingdom, due in large part to the faithful labors of the folks listed below. If you are a new member of Covenant Presbytery, we encourage you to find one or two committees on which you would be interested in serving and notify the Chairman of the Nominating Committee.

All committees and commissions are listed below. In each case, RE = Ruling Elder, TE = Teaching Elder, and each person’s term is completed at the end of the year indicated (where applicable). Vacancies can be filled at any meeting of Presbytery; new classes for most committees are elected at the October stated meeting. To view a committee’s manual, click on (manual) after the committee name. In most cases, you can email a committee chairman by clicking on his name.
