Pittsburgh Presbytery handled the usual variety of vocational matters at its meeting on April 20, 2006 at the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.
Through the report of the Committee on Preparation for Ministry the Presbytery voted to receive five inquirers as candidates for the Ministry of Word and Sacrament: Caroline Becker (Hampton Presbyterian Church), Rebecca Cartus (Presbyterian Church of Coraopolis), Emily Miller (Southminster Presbyterian Church), Heather Tunney (East Liberty Presbyterian Church), and Tamara Yeager (Westminster Presbyterian Church).
Through the report of the Committee on Preparation for Ministry the Presbytery also approved Leslie Y. Boone (Mt. Pisgah Presbyterian Church) for ordination. Leslie will be a Chaplain for Medi Home Hospice.
Through the report of the Committee on ministry the Presbytery approved calls. My friend and colleague from New York state Dean Weaver has been called to be the pastor of the Memorial Park Presbyterian Church. Scott Hoffman has been called to be the associate pastor of the Presbyterian Church of Sewickley. Jay M. Hollinsworth has been called as pastor of the Swissvale Presbyterian Church.
God is constantly blessing the church by bringing people to new places and ways of service.
