The Committee on Representation & Nominations (CRN) is working diligently to complete our work so that we can present a full slate of nominations to our committees. As we looked at our current committee membership, we learned that only 25% of our congregations are represented on Presbytery committees.

That’s why we need your help!

We need suggestions of folks who might be willing to serve on one of our committees. With our new structure it is no longer required that only ruling elders serve—now any member of a congregation can serve. Service on Presbytery committees is a good way to get to know sisters and brothers in Christ. Service on Presbytery committees strengthens our life together, and makes us more effective in our witness to Jesus Christ.

If you would be interested in serving on a Presbytery committee, or if you would like to suggest someone to serve, please contact the Chair of CRN Jerry McKinney: or fill out the form below.

Thank you for your help!

The purpose of the Albany Presbytery Blog is to share information, tell stories, and promote the mission and ministry of the presbytery, synod and beyond. While the breadth of this medium is intentionally broad, it is not a platform for opinion pieces related to business coming before the presbytery unless designed as part of an initiative to provide a diversity of viewpoints at the direction of the presbytery. Exceptions to this policy may be brought to the presbytery officers who will determine appropriateness of submissions.
