The mission of Self-Development of People is carried out by the National and certified Presbytery and Synod Self-Development of People Committees. The composition of these committees follow the guidelines set by the 182nd (1970) and 199th (1987) General Assemblies. The National Committee is composed of 31 members, elected by the General Assembly. Presbytery and Synod Self-Development committees are composed of at least five members, authorized or elected by their governing bodies. The majority of the members of Self-Development Committees must represent racial/ethnic minority groups, and the majority of the members must be from the Presbyterian Church(U.S.A.).

 

Consider being nominated to volunteer as a SDOP National Committee member. The 31-person national committee helps to tell the SDOP “story” regularly. For more information contact Cynthia White or download a brochure.
