International Peacemaker to Visit Presbytery of Boston this Fall!

Our presbytery has been approved to host an International Peacemaker through the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program during the Season of Peace this fall. We are tentatively scheduled to welcome Rev. Nta William Nche of Cameroon from the week of September 30 through October 7. Rev. Nche is an ordained pastor from the Momo Division Northwest Region of Cameroon and serves as the National Peace Coordinator with the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon. With his deep knowledge and experience with peace work, he has been instrumental in efforts to stop the armed conflict in the Northwest and Southwest regions of Cameroon. He has participated in Cameroon’s National Dialogue, served as chairman of the steering committee of the All Anglophone General Conference and presently serves as founder of Peace Action Cameroon and as interim coordinator for Together 4 Peace Cameroon. We are looking to assemble a small welcoming team from our Presbytery to coordinate with the Louisville office on scheduling events, transportation, and hospitality for Rev. Nche while he is with us. We will also be looking for one to two host families who would be willing to open their home to Rev. Nche during that time. 

Rev. Trina Portillo of the Presbyterian Church in Burlington is the point person for this team, and if you are interested in helping to plan for this exciting opportunity, please contact her at pastor@burlingtonpres.org, or by phone (773) 951-7820 by August 1st.

Update! Presbytery Directory: Several months ago our Presbytery Directory was changed to an online format, though a PDF was made available to download for those who preferred the old directory format. That PDF will no longer be posted on the website, but you can download your own if you so desire by following these steps:
  • After accessing the online directory, click "file" from the menu at the top of the screen.
  • Then, click "download" from the menu that appears.
  • From the list of download options that appear, select "PDF" (or any other file format you wish to convert the directory into).
  • To ensure you download the entire directory, make sure that the "Export" option is set to "Workbook" instead of "Current Sheet"
New! Council Minutes: The minutes from the Jul 15 Council meeting are now available on our website.
