PMA to Multiply into
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.
