by The Des Moines Presbytery Interim General Presbyter Search Committee
We are in every way trying to be transparent with our task. We will continue to keep you informed about where we are in the process.There are times approaching when we begin to relate to candidates that we will be required to hold certain information received from them as confidential in order not to jeopardize their ministry.
It comes as no surprise that all doctors, counselors and church leaders are expected to maintain confidentiality. When this doesn’t happen it’s a major breech of ethics.
But what role does confidentiality play in the life of a search committee? How do its members determine what is appropriate communication with the Presbytery? When does “confidentiality” become an excuse to keep secrets?
The Presbytery of Des Moines will be sending a delegation to the 2016 Presbyterian Youth Triennium. The delegation is being registered at the present time. If for some reason, you have have not turned in your application, please call the Presbytery office at 515-276-4991 ASAP.
