Season of Peace

Synod of the Northeast

 

Synod of Northeast Map

 

The Synod of the Northeast has been engaged in extensive discernment regarding our future call and purpose. We have now adopted the New Way Forward plan, which charts our missional calling and purpose as we move into God’s future. It includes a renewed understanding that we are a regional community of 22 presbyteries and 1,103 congregations learning to respond to God’s call to become agents of divine justice, transforming the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in the Northeast into a community of hospitality and welcome for all.

Moving into this new way of life together has included initiatives toward embracing all the gifts of our regional community, including the diversity within and around our congregations. As the synod shifts energy from governance to mission, opportunities abound for members to form new networks around shared mission and ministry interests of all kinds.

In order to more fully support the gift of diversity within our region, we are examining issues of racism and white and majority privilege and have committed to a renewal of racial-ethnic caucuses and an initiative supporting emerging leaders.
