In 2018, the Presbytery approved an exciting new Ministry Initiatives Program (MIB) with the primary purpose to help spur, support, and finance initial implementation of imaginative ministry ideas within our congregations and across our Presbytery. Active members from each Presbytery commission and the vice moderator make up a Mission Initiatives Board (MIB). Financial support will come from the Presbytery’s Church Development Fund, which was established in 2013. The MIB hopes to have its first proposals for funding in 2020. Look for more information soon. It you have questions, the MIB members are: Mark Gauen, Chair (Westerville First); Peter Galbraith (Nelsonville First); Sarah Juist (Hanover); Bob Armstrong (Hilliard); Bob Gustafson (West Berlin); Jeannie Harsh, Ex-officio (Presbytery staff).
