Intra-Presbytery Dialogue on Worship Styles

Monday, January 28th, 2013

At the 89th stated meeting of the Southwest Florida Presbytery this past November, two of the teaching elders in our presbytery, Dr. David McWilliams and Rev. Drew Bennett, presented on worship styles. As we all seek to be faithful to the Scriptures and honoring to Christ in our worship, we hope these two presentations would facilitate an ongoing dialogue for all of us. The notes from the two presenters is below.

Intra-Presbytery Dialogue on Assessment

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

This past Saturday, at the regularly stated meeting of the Southwest Florida Presbytery, we hosted what we hope to be the first in a series of discussions about topics of importance to the presbytery. This first dialogue centered on the role of the MNA Assessment Center in assessing the readiness and preparation of a potential church planter. The healthy dialogue featured initial presentations of two of the teaching elders in our presbytery, Steve Casselli and Tim Rice, followed by an open discussion and Q&A time. The notes from those two presentations are below.
