Pastoral Transition

On October 1, 2020, Davie Street Presbyterian celebrated the call of its pastor, Rev. Dr. Byron A Wade, to the position of General Presbyter, Western North Carolina Presbytery.  During the year that followed, Davie Street welcomed New Hope Presbytery clergy who served as guest ministers and meeting moderators.

The transition period offers Davie Street an opportunity to pause, pray, and discern. Through this process, the church can reflect on its past, gain insights on where we are, and how to move forward in faith as we listen to where God is calling us.  Members can rediscover or discover gifts and talents that can enhance their worship experience as they become more involved in the church’s ministries. As part of the transition, a Mission Study must be completed and submitted to the Presbytery.  Below is a graphic on the building of a mission study.  This is the first leg of the process.
