A New Vision Statement

Partnering with congregations and clergy to minister in a changing world.

Mission Statement

As our Presbytery of Des Moines moves toward the 21st century, we see:

A presbytery whose fundamental life is in and through local congregations:

  • Affirming and supporting all congregations
  • Wisely using and continuing to discover the varied gifts of its people
  • Responding to issues as they arise from the local churches

A presbytery which focuses on three key ministries. Instead of trying to be everything to everyone, our presbytery will be known as a presbytery which engages itself in:

  • Extending the ministry of local churches
  • Supporting local churches
  • Providing efficient governance
