The Commission on Ministry of the Presbytery of Seattle understands that the most important focus of its work is to enable the healthy ministry of our pastors and congregations. The commission prayerfully and conscientiously seeks to:
listen with congregations as they seek God's voice in their pastoral searches
validate pastors who are called to specialized ministries
serve as the fellowship of accountability for healthy and balanced relationships between parishes and pastors
challenge our clergy to excellence in their ministries
help clergy serve as prophetic and pastoral spiritual leaders by equipping Elders, Deacons and congregational Nominating Committees to serve as competent leaders
