MISSION STATEMENT

The vision of New Castle Presbytery is to be a governing body of the PC (USA) that cares for and connects its congregations, clergy and laity for mission and ministry. Our work together will be offered as worship to Our Lord.

New Castle Presbytery is currently seeking a Connectional Presbyter  

Ministry Vision, Emerging Needs and Goals

    • To enhance, broaden, and repave the avenues of conversation between the presbytery and its congregations, we envision a bold and creative future for NCP and believe a deeply relational approach to ministry and governance is the channel through which that future becomes present reality.
    • To address the present and emerging needs of our community, a new leadership team with a co-presbyter model will work in tandem to inspire, encourage, excite, support and motivate the engagement of our congregations and churches in actively engaging with each other, and community partners to meet the needs of our communities.
