Ministry Support Team (MST)

Ministry Support Team (MST)

The Presbytery develops and implements strategy for congregational locations, redevelopment, and pastoral leadership through the Ministry Support Team’s Commissions on Ministry and Preparation.

The Commission on Ministry team provides much counsel and support of local congregations which are in the midst of transition of pastoral coverage, modifying its need for pastoral coverage by yoking, merging, or federating, or when conflicts arise.

The Commission on Preparation for Ministry (CPM) serves those sensing God’s call into ordered ministry either as Ordained Ministers of the Word and Sacrament (Teaching Elders) or those seeking to become Commissioned Ruling Elders laboring within the bounds of Kiskiminetas Presbytery. The CPM understands their work to be part of a covenant relationship that is called to guide, instruct, and support the prospective leader on behalf of the larger PCUSA and the local church.
