Community Organization

The United Church of Christ combines the organizational styles of Congregationalism and Presbyterianism. Congregationalism provides the basis for local congregations, who select their ministers and handle their own affairs. Presbyterianism organizes relationships between member churches, in which the General Synod is the highest body.
