Pastoral Leadership

In Blackhawk Presbytery, with its diversity of congregation size, pastoral leadership takes a variety of forms.
The Commission on Ministry has the primary responsibility for assuring that each congregation has competent and appropriate pastoral leadership. Each congregation has a designated representative who is in contact with the pastor(s) and session. The Commission on Ministry assists congregations and pastors through:
  • care and counseling for pastors
  • technical assistance for congregations
  • conflict assessment and management
  • assistance during pastoral transitions
For assistance in these areas, contact the COM moderator.
The Committee on Preparation for Ministry provides care and oversight to those in various stages of preparation for ministry.  For assistance in these areas, contact the CPM moderator.
