Annual Work of the Minister (Teaching Elder)

  • The Committee on Ministry has responsibility for staying in contact with all member clergy and is required to report each year to the presbytery the type of work in which each member is engaged. Those clergy who are not under jurisdiction of a church or higher governing body are required to provide a validated ministry annual report.
  • Date Format: MM slash DD slash YYYY
  • You may write as much or as little as you like. However, we ask that you cover the basics of G- 2.0503a which define validated ministry in the PCUSA. Therefore please include in your response how you serve or aid others and/or how you enable the ministries of others, how you are accountable to the presbytery and to other appropriate entities (hospitals for chaplains, for example), how you are involved in the work of Foothills Presbytery and in the worship and service of a congregation. The Book of Order definition also has language about “conformity to the mission of God’s people” as set forth in scripture, the Book of Order, and the Confessions as well as giving “evidence of theologically informed fidelity to God’s Word.” We are interested in how you might interpret these last two parts of the definition. Please focus your answers on your ministry in the last year.
