"Equipping and Supporting Congregations to Be Christ in the World"

The Presbytery of the Western Reserve bears witness to the grace of God in Jesus Christ through the unique ministries of its members and churches. We are an ordered and interconnected body that equips each congregation to experience God in vital worship and mission. With love and cooperation, we develop leaders, nurture pastors, and support ministries of justice and evangelism. We believe the Holy Spirit speaks through the gathered body as, together, we discern Christ's will and give glory to God. (May 27, 2015)
