Following the adoption of the new Form of Government of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the Presbytery of Cayuga-Syracuse implemented a new Presbytery structure. In our restructuring, we abolished the positions of Transitional or Executive Presbyter as well as Administrative Assistant, and we closed our structural office. From 2012 through 2017 we were served by a full-time Stated Clerk/Communicator, a position which is currently vacant due to early retirement.
The new structure transfers primary leadership responsibility to the Leadership Team which coordinates the work of the Presbytery of Cayuga-Syracuse and provides leadership in discussion of strategy and decision-making. It generally meets on the fourth Thursday of every month, and is comprised of fifteen ministers and elders, in three groups, each serving three years. In addition to the elected members, the Presbytery Moderator, Vice-Moderator, Stated Clerk and Treasurer serve as ex-officio members.
