A. Presbytery Council: The Presbytery Council shall be responsible for supervising and coordinating the total program of the presbytery, and shall be the agency primarily responsible for long-range planning. The Presbytery Council shall consist of the moderator, vice moderator, stated clerk-treasurer, pastor host for the next regular session of presbytery, chairperson of the Permanent Task Force on Ordained Clergy and chairpersons of boards and standing committees. The authority of the council is that of an executive board and not that of an ecclesiastical commission. Between meetings of the presbytery it may interpret the presbyter’s policy decisions and make necessary program and budget adjustments, but it may not make judicial decisions for the presbytery as an ecclesiastical commission is empowered to do. The council shall be directly responsible to the presbytery.
