The Committee on Ministry’s primary responsibility is faithfulness to God revealed to us in Jesus Christ. First and foremost, the Committee on Ministry is an expression of the church of Jesus Christ. The Committee on Ministry is a community of the Holy Spirit. In every deliberation, decision, and action, the Committee on Ministry seeks to embody the “one another’s” of the New Testament.
One of the most telling examples of the connectional nature of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is the Committee on Ministry. We recognize we need each other to follow Jesus Christ. We need each other to discern God’s will and intention. We need each other to decide the way forward. We need each other to serve as witnesses for God’s love, grace and justice.
