What Does It Mean To Be A Commissioner?
Commissioners serve as leaders and missionaries of the synod. They are called to seek and to discern the mind of Christ, interpret the mission and actions of the synod, and serve as an agent of Christ’s mission in the region and member presbyteries.
What Kinds of Gifts, Experience, and Abilities Do I Need to Have to Be A Synod Commissioner?
As the synod continues to grow toward a more missional body, there is an ongoing need to communicate these changes and to develop ways and means by which the synod can continue to connect, equip, and empower. The synod needs leaders with a variety of gifts and skills in the areas of media and communications, finance, and development, among others, and with a heart for mission and ministry.
