Year of Leader Formation: Investing in Ruling Elders and Deacons

Year of Leader Formation - Webinars

 

During the Year of Leader Formation, ruling elders and deacons will have an opportunity to join together in three webinars. 

Year of Leader Formation: Investing in Ruling Elders and Deacons
Parliamentary Procedure for Leaders – A Webinar
July 14, 2021; 7-8:30 pm (eastern)
Tricia Dykers-Koenig

PC(USA) ruling elders and deacons have responsibilities as leaders in Christ’s church. Whether you serve as a moderator or as a participant, your call will involve meetings conducted by parliamentary procedure – usually Robert’s Rules of Order. Most Presbyterians have learned about parliamentary procedure through observation during meetings; during this Year of Leader Formation webinar, you can expect to learn more about the theological connections between parliamentary procedure and our Book of Order and gain skills to help you participate more confidently and effectively. You will have an opportunity during the registration process to name questions you would like to see addressed.

The webinar will be led by Associate Stated Clerk Tricia Dykers-Koenig, who served as parliamentarian for the online 224th General Assembly (2020). Tricia is Associate Director for Mid Council Relations in the Office of the General Assembly, a minister member of the Presbytery of the Western Reserve, and a Registered Parliamentarian.

Registration will be available here later this summer.

God has gifted each of us with a variety of skills, interests, and talents. As those called to leadership in the church, particularly to the ministries of ruling elder and deacon, many of those gifts are called upon in a variety of ways. Take time to explore and discover your own talents, how they can be used to form effective teams, and ways that we work together in community as God’s children. During this Year of Leader Formation webinar, you can expect to search within yourself while also being introduced to some tools to use in your own congregation.
