The Presbytery derives its mandate and structure from Practice and Procedure manual of the PCEA, which governs the Church and is responsible to the General Assembly of PCEA Church in all its functions. The Presbytery is charged with the responsibility of supervising activities in the Parishes and Presbytery sub-committees. It provides the link with the General Assembly Office. The Presbytery main organ of administration is the Statutory Presbytery Court made up of all the Ministers and pairing Elders.
The Presbytery has a financial Committee charged with the financial management and accounting for the Presbytery funds. The Presbytery executive is made up of Moderator, Clerk, Co-Clerk, Treasurer and Finance Chairperson who exercise delegated authority and are charged with implementing Presbytery decisions.
The Presbytery has working Committees such as Investment, Audit and Property Committee. The Investment Committee is charged with providing technical advice and management of Presbytery Investments, implementation of insurance policies for staff and property, performance management, strategic plan development and implementation. The Audit Committee is charged with internal audit role and implementation of external audit recommendations. The property Committee is responsible for ensuring that all Church properties are properly maintained, serviced and documented. It also ensures that fixed assets are registered with the Presbyterian Foundation and are insured accordingly.
The Presbytery developed its first strategic plan in 2011 covering the period 2011-2016. During the initial period of implementation of the plan, the Presbytery was faced with numerous challenges. One of the challenges was how to mobilize all members to achieve the set targets within the timelines provided by the plan. To overcome this challenge the Presbytery adopted the Benchmarks tools in 2012. The tool has some similarities with Performance Contract used in the corporate world. However, the Benchmarks tool developed uses the peer review approach where equals are involved in evaluating achievement of each other. The NNP Benchmark Model is key reference document in the ongoing PCEA Benchmark development.
To improve governance, the Presbytery has also developed several management manuals and policy documents. These documents include financial policy manual, human resource management manual, and Internal Audit guidelines. In addition, Presbytery has developed a Customer Service Charter where it outlines its services standards and expectations. All Parishes are also required to develop their specific Customer Service Charter which should be displayed in strategic places for ease of access and reading.
