Meet the Presbytery Staff & Officers

The Presbytery has only part-time staff and has moved to a virtual office.   For this reason, contact by e-mail or via a form to fill out on this website is most effective.    Our phone number is (607) 323-4477 and the main telephone forwards calls to anywhere our staff chooses to be located, and staff have voicemail mailboxes as well.   The first person listed is easiest to reach and has the most daytime hours.
