Congregational Ministries




Our vision is the Biblical imperatives: John 20:21 and Article 4 of Confession of Belhar -“to stand with Him.” The pursuit of the mission is to take us beyond the walls of our church buildings out into the open places where people live and work. Congregations are called by the Triune God to become part of His mission (the Missio Dei).

Focus Areas:

  • the accompaniment of congregations and ministers: training and development of facilitators/mentors for the accompaniment of congregations, ministers and their families;
  • Conducting workshops in all presbyteries with the aim to engage with ministers and church council members to facilitate discussion;
  • Do do research on vacant congregations (there are 178), internal church unity and the Integrated Ministry model.
