Looking to the future and figuring out how to be the church today, The Presbytery of the Northern Plains adopted a structure to help us more efficiently accomplish our responsibilities and tasks.
The structure breaks down the Presbytery responsibilities into four core areas of responsibilities
These core areas of responsibilities are being called pods, and would be the similar to a committee. The major difference, each task of responsibility assigned to a pod would have a task leader. These task leaders make up the membership of the pod along with the chairperson.
Depending on the scope of the task assigned, one person may be responsible to ensure the task is completed and report back to the pod. However, if a task is large in scale additional people may be recruited to ensure the task is completed. If this happens, it would be similar to how a Council or the Committee on Ministry has sub-committee’s which report to them
