Teaching Elder Kevin Cauley Installed as Moderator
Kevin Cauley, pastor of Darlington Evangelical Presbyterian Church, was installed at the beginning of our 94th Stated Meeting. We welcome Kevin as he leads us through our multiplication process. Please be in prayer for Kevin, his family and the other leaders of Presbytery of the Mid-Atlantic.
Ruling Elder Duke Lineberry Steps Down As Moderator
Memo to PMA Worshiping Communities:
It is with mixed feelings that the Executive Council accepts RE Duke Lineberry’s request to forgo his optional year as PMA Moderator for 2020. We are saddened by the loss of his leadership, but joyful that Duke has chosen to prioritize the most important things in his life, such as family. We would like to thank Duke for his faithful devotion and service as PMA Moderator for 2019 and with joy extend our prayers and best wishes for him and his family as they, like the rest of us, prayerfully seek to keep the first things first in our lives and witness to our Lord Jesus Christ.
We would also like to extend a heart felt welcome to Moderator-elect TE Kevin Cauley as he now assumes the role of PMA Moderator for 2020/21. Please keep Kevin and his family in your prayers as he seeks to lead in serving our presbytery during our Multiplication Process.

Transition Prayer Initiative
Presbytery of the Mid-Atlantic asks all of its churches to be in prayer about our ongoing transition to three Missional Repions and ultimately into three presbyteries. To help with this initiative, we have created a bulletin insert for use in your church. You can download an PDF version of this insert here.
Proposed PMA Transition Timeline
Presbytery of the Mid-Atlantic Multiplication Transition Team proposed the timeline above to move from one presbytery in three missional regions to three distinct presbyteries. The transition will occurs in several steps outlined above.
At its 91st meeting, the Presbytery of the Mid-Atlantic voted 136-11 to move forward with the vision of multiplying from one to three presbyteries. Initially, we will begin to move toward three missional regions and when structure and finances are developed in each of the regions, the PMA will multiply into three new presbyteries. This will likely take us 3-5 years and will require approval of the General Assembly. Thanks to the Presbytery Multiplication Study Team led by Dr. Bill Enns and including Moderator Duke Lineberry, Scott McGregor, Ken Priddy, Powell Sykes, Jan Teagle, and Wes Vander Lugt.
