Community Partnerships


To support pursuing, flourishing and relating per the presbytery’s Mission Statement.

To increase congregational vitality, enhance mission, and strengthen collective witness.


Relationships with executive staff and key program directors of organizations whose purpose, mission, and values are aligned with increasing vitality and strengthening mission with the congregations in the Presbytery of Chicago.

These relationships are maintained by the Associate Executive Presbyter, who serves as a bridge, catalyst, facilitator, and support for congregations to establish their own partnerships with these organizations as desired and to offer presbytery-wide education and training opportunities. Our goal is to support building healthy collaborations, and intentional, strategic, and sustainable partnerships to advance our collective work in mission.
