Presbytery Nominating Committee Is Looking for New Members


The Presbytery Nominating Committee has several positions to fill. These are great opportunities for new adventures and new learning. The work involves time and effort.  But if it is God’s will, He will be beside you. Do not fear!

The committee prays that we will be led to those persons who have been called by God to serve in Beaver-Butler Presbytery. Are you such a person? Consider praying for the Holy Spirit to lead you as you would consider serving the presbytery.
As you might know, this can not be a one-time prayer. The prayer may not be answered this week or this month, but keep praying, because such answer or outcome is within God’s time frame.
Maybe the answer is a distinct no. But when you are asked by the committee, you will be able to clearly discern if and where you are being led.
Contact the Presbytery Office if you are interested in serving on a committee
or if you know of someone in your church who has the gifts for this ministry.
Call 724-452-7515 or email the office at office@beaverbutler.org
