Welcome to the Presbytery of the Northern Plains!

We are a mid-council of the PC(USA) residing in the Synod of Lakes and Prairies. We are made up of churches and worshiping communities in Eastern Montana, North Dakota and Western Minnesota. This is an exciting time in our Presbytery. We have recently adopted a new POD structure of governance. In April 2019 we welcomed our new Presbytery Leader, Rev. Marji Ackerman. We are excited and hopeful about the future and what God has in store. This site should be a resource page for needs, regardless of your role in the your church or the Presbytery. If you have any questions, please contact the Presbytery Office and we will do our best to help you. 

Upcoming Book Study

"How to Lead When You Don't Know Where You're Going" by Susan Beaumont

Our Presbytery Leader, Rev. Marji Ackerman will be leading a 4 week book study on the book "How to Lead When You Don't Know Where You're Going" by Susan Beaumont. This wil be a great opportunity for all of our leaders. On the back of the book it says, "How to Lead When You Don't Know Where You're Going is a practical book of hope for tired and weary leaders who risk defining this era of ministry in terms of failure or loss. It does not attempt to describe where the church is headed; rather is helps leaders stand firn in a disoriented state, learning from their mistakes and leading despite the confusion."

This study will be on Zoom. Here is the Login Info:
