Personnel Workgroup







Constitutional Procedures Workgroup

On behalf of Presbytery Coordinating Commission and Presbytery Assembly, provide encouragement, guidance and resources to churches to help in the proper maintenance of session minutes and records; and provide independent review and recommendation to Presbytery Assembly on new Book of Order amendments transmitted from the General Assembly.




Ecumenical & Inter-religious Workgroup

On behalf of Presbytery Coordinating Commission, the Ecumenical and Inter-Religious Work Group, cares for the Presbytery’s relationships with other Christian denominations, with other spiritual and religious communities, and with ecumenical and interreligious organizations and bodies.
Although Chicago Presbytery partners with justice advocacy groups from time to time, the Ecumenical and Inter-religious Work Group’s purpose is to create and sustain mutually empowering channels of communication with other religious communities. Its primary purpose is relationship-building, not advocacy for specific ideologies, parties, or causes.
The EIRWG hopes to help foster:
  • An appreciation of diverse religious communities in the Chicagoland area.
  • Mutual understanding of the concerns, values and believes among those communities
  • Sustainable relationships of strong communication and common service.
