The Presbytery of Utah is the administrative hub of 22 congregations of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). It is one of the 172 presbyteries in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) which cover the continental 48 states, Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. 21 of the 22 congregations in the Presbytery of Utah are in the State of Utah and one is just across the Utah-Idaho border in Preston, Idaho. The congregations stretch from Preston, ID in the north to St. George, UT in the southwest corner of the state. The purpose of the Presbytery is expressed in its mission statement: The Presbytery of Utah will provide leadership and resources resulting in healthy and growing congregations.
The Presbytery is served by 4 staff persons: interim executive presbyter, stated clerk, treasurer, and administrative assistant. They are all part-time. The staff operates out of the office which is located in an office building owned by a member of First Presbyterian Church of Salt Lake City. Teaching elders, ruling elders and members of congregations serve in rotating terms on the Coordinating Council, Committee on Ministry, Committee on Preparation for Ministry, Nominating Committee and Permanent Judicial Commission.
