Get to know our teams!
Our Fraternal Relations Team helps us to cultivate communication and cooperation with other parts of the body of Christ and to work in alliances wherever appropriate. The team is chaired by Glenn McDowell, Associate Pastor of Liberti Church Fairmount. Contact Glenn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Shepherding Team is responsible for pastoral care and genuine spiritual welfare of the teaching elders and churches in the presbytery. The Shepherding Team also organizes our annual presbytery retreat, which usually takes place in March of each year. Our Shepherding Team is chaired by Dave White of Harvest USA. Contact David at email@example.com.
The ordination process in the PCA involves four steps: Candidacy (or "coming under care"), Internship, Licensure and final Ordination. The Candidates and Interns Team oversees only the Candidacy and Internship phases. You'll want to interact with the Licensure and Ordination Team once you reach the point of taking those exams.
The C & I Team walks with candidates for Gospel ministry from the time they come under care all the way until their ordination, in partnership with the candidates' local churches. During that time, a candidate will usually meet with us at least four times: to become a candidate, to propose an internship, to have a completed internship approved, and finally to have a family interview prior to being cleared for ordination trials. See below for applications and directions regarding each of these steps.
4. Family Interview (must be completed before ordination trials begin!)
Note: The C & I Team meets approximately six weeks prior to each meeting of presbytery, and applications are generally due a few weeks prior to that time. For specific application due dates and team meeting dates, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The ordination process in the PCA involves several steps: Candidacy (or "coming under care"), Internship, Licensure and final Ordination. The L & O Team oversees the last two steps in this process.
