Welcome to the Living Waters Presbytery
Living Waters Presbytery Vision and Strategic Planning
At its September 17, 2011 meeting, Living Waters Presbytery adopted the following Vision and Mission Statement to guide its work:
We believe that, with God as our centre, and Jesus Christ as our guide, we will be in relationship as Living Waters Presbytery so that we may be a Spirit-led, inclusive community offering encouragement and support, and embracing new ways to be the church.
The mission of Living Waters Presbytery is to be in life-giving relationship with pastoral charges, missions, camps, outreach ministries, ministry personnel, youth and others in our presbytery, with the wider church and with community partners.
To fulfill that mission, Living Waters Presbytery will work so that:
we engage in dialogue with pastoral charges as a priority so that ministry personnel and congregants feel heard
we seek justice
we celebrate God's presence
we encourage stewardship of time, talents, gifts and assets
we act as a resource and we share resources and learnings
we are transparent, consultative and accountable
we nurture the spiritual life of ministry personnel and lay people in our presbytery
we include and engage youth in shaping the church
