The Synod is pleased to welcome Ruling Elder Lori Hylton as our new Administrative Coordinator!
We are excited and delighted to welcome the Rev. Margaret Mitsuyasu as the Synod’s new Mission Coordinator.
The Mission Coordinator position was created to address our growing need for dedicated staff support to provide resourcing and relationship to those interested in applying for Innovation and Higher Education Grants, and follow up once applicants have received a grant. The position also includes oversight of the Synod’s communication strategy, as we seek to share and celebrate the stories of our Innovation Grantees, Networks, mission partners, campus ministries, new gospel communities, presbytery support, and many other endeavors with our whole Synod community. We believe Margaret will bring love, enthusiasm, and clarity to this work, helping us to continue embodying the commitments of our Way Forward.
Purpose: The Administrative Coordinator will serve as a member of the Synod Mission Team providing administrative coordination for members of the Mission Team and ensuring the effective and seamless work of the mission and ministry of the Synod.

The Synod Mission Coordinator will work to provide effective communication throughout the Synod Community through a variety of communications tools, as well as provide support and guidance to those seeking and receiving mission and ministry support from Synod programs and resources, and to promote Synod funds development.
