Committee on Ministry Documents

The Committee on Ministry – (COM) supports National Capital Presbytery’s (NCP) responsibilities for the care, oversight, and accountability for teaching elders and educators. These include examining, receiving, and dismissing minister members; offering encouragement and support to teaching elders and educators; seeking healthy relationships between teaching elders and congregations; and helping congregations secure appropriate pastoral leadership and educators in times of transition.

The work is carried out by five teams of teaching and ruling elders – Care, Congregational Transitions, Examinations, Ministry Relations, and Specialized – and with the oversight of the COM Coordinating Committee. COM’s authority is based in the Book of Order, G-3.0306 and G-3.0307 [Book of Order references here].

For information on the work of each team, its leadership, and the members of the Committee on Ministry, please click here.
