The mission of Seattle Presbytery is to participate, in word and deed, in God’s transforming work through the Gospel of Jesus Christ: †by strengthening the witness and mission of our congregations and members and by building strong partnerships with each other and the larger Christian community.


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
