Clerk’s Resources

The Presbytery of South Dakota exists to establish, equip and encourage congregations to do the work of Jesus Christ. Our mission as faithful stewards is to worship, study, witness, and serve so that the world may know and respond to God’s reconciling love in Jesus Christ.

Resources for Clerks of Session

As Presbyterians ministering throughout the great state of South Dakota we have a legacy of reflecting God’s passion and love for God’s people and are rooted through service and the sharing of God’s light in every context we may find ourselves, and it is by God’s Spirit alone that we are able to go, do, and serve.
