The Church and Pastor Relations Committee of POJ's Commission on Ministry invites you to learn about a spiritual parish opportunity approved by the presbytery at its October 2022 meeting.

The spiritual parish was created to help churches in the presbytery that are challenged to call and retain ordained clergy.

This spring, COM is holding information sessions to help church leaders learn about the spiritual parish and the possibilities it offers. Pastors, clerks of session, and session members are invited to attend.

At each session, a presbyter and a representative from COM will provide information and answer questions.
