- Considering amendments to PTB bylaws establishing the Associate Presbyter for Emerging Ministries as a part of Presbytery Leadership, amending the language for terms of office for the Coach & Coordinator, Stated Clerk, and Treasurer, and adding permission to suspend the requirement for a written ballot for each of these positions if there is only one candidate,
- re-electing the treasurer for the Presbytery of Tampa Bay, and
- electing a new vice-moderator to fill the unexpired term left vacant by the resignation of Ruling Elder Sally Speer and fill other vacancies as needed.
Zoom is both our platform and "host church" for this meeting:
The online meeting "room" will open for sign-in no later than 8:00 a.m. so participants can connect (and troubleshoot if needed) before the Presbytery meeting starts.
- The online meeting will start promptly at 8:30 a.m.
To maintain the integrity of the meeting while also conducting an open meeting, we'll limit participation in the Zoom meeting environment to those with the privilege of the floor.
If you have any questions about who should and shouldn't register for the Zoom meeting, please reach out to me ASAP.
As I get ready to hit "send" on this update, we still need to register more ruling elder commissioners from congregations.
If you are a pastor/moderator or clerk of session and have not already reported your ruling elder commissioner(s) to us at email@example.com, please get us their contact info as soon as possible.
Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with questions!
