Seattle Presbytery Executive Board Response to "Vacant Property Resolution"

Seattle Presbytery

To: Commissioners at the October 16, 2018 Seattle Presbytery Meeting

From: Executive Board, Seattle Presbytery

Re: Vacant Property Resolution


The Executive Board agrees that a vacant property policy that further guides the Presbytery in its use of property, establishment of new ministries, and the use of funds, would strengthen existing Presbytery guidelines regarding property and finance, which have already served us well.

The Executive Board will bring a vacant property policy for the Presbytery's approval at the January 2019 Presbytery meeting.

The Executive Board concurs with the FPCS AC/Session in opposing any conditions that would obstruct the AC/Session’s decision to sell the property and urges disapproval of the resolution.
