Who We Are
Our Vision and Mission Statement
God calls us through the Holy Spirit to connect with each other to plant, grow, and nurture vital, faithful communities of Christ for service and ministry.
In response, we build partnerships, communicate with and support congregations, leaders, and individuals, and embody Christ's transforming love in the world. (Adopted November 27, 2012)
Our Structural Design for Mission and Ministry
The Presbytery of Scioto Valley will be structured with a Coordinating Team and four standing Commissions each having the authority to act on behalf of the Presbytery between meetings (only as authorized by formal action of the Presbytery). Each commission shall have eight (8) members and a chair. Commission members will be nominated by the Nominating Committee and elected by the Presbytery to serve one 3-year term, which may be renewable for 1 additional 3-year term. Commission members shall be both teaching and ruling elders, who reflect the diverse make-up of the Presbytery. Each commission will have the authority to appoint task groups, resource and response teams as necessary to fulfill their particular responsibilities. Presbytery Staff will resource the Coordinating Team and the commission with voice but not vote.
