Cherokee Presbytery engages in ministry and mission and supports its member churches as we Follow Christ Together through:
- United and cooperative mission,
- Presbytery and congregational ministry support,
- Celebration and hospitality witnessing to God’s activity within the presbytery, its congregations and the world,
- Spiritual development of congregational leadership,
- Nurturing discipleship of ordained and lay leaders, and
- Coordination of mission and ministry throughout the presbytery.
