Balancing Order and Ministry

There are so many necessary details to make any community run smoothly, effectively and with accountability. Some people might say the devil is in the details, but we know that they are necessary in our work to strengthen, nurture and gathering. So if you are looking for the nitty gritty, you have found the right place.


If you are just returning from a meeting and have been approved to be reimbursed for your expenses? Please fill out the Travel Expense Statement and send it to Fran Klaiber. Make sure to check out our Reimbursement Policies before traveling and filling in your expense statement. And if you are interested in making an easy donation to the Synod, fill out the expense statement and request for it to be considered a donation—we will send you a letter thanking you for your contribution!


The following documents and policies comprise the Synod’s Manual of Operations. In addition to outlining the commitments we’ve made for how we will live together as the Synod community, we commend them to our member presbyteries and others as good examples of these respective documents.
