New Purpose and Strategy Statement Presentation

The Executive Committee of Pittsburgh Presbytery recently approved a new purpose and strategy statement for the Presbytery. While similar in some ways to previous statements, they also present a significant shift in the way in which the role of the Presbytery is understood. Information about the statements will be shared at the Presbytery meeting, but for those who are interested in a more in-depth look into the process by which these statements were developed and some thoughts on these statements will shape the future of the Presbytery, Brian is offering a Zoom gathering next Tuesday, September 26, at 4:00 pm. Please RSVP here.
