Description:
Presbyterian Church buildings of all Presbyterian denominations.
Expanded Description:
The Presbyterian Church is one of the oldest protestant denominations, tracing its theological origins back to John Calvin, and its history back to John Knox and 14th century Scotland. Today there are over a dozen different Presbyterian denominations around the world. All are included in this category. The buildings range from simple country churches, to cathedral-like edifices; from the classic architecture of historic buildings to graceful modern designs. Buildings that were once Presbyterian Churches that have been converted to another use may also be included as long as its history can be documented.
Instructions for Posting a Presbyterian Churches Waymark:

1). COORDINATES: Personally obtained coordinates must be obtained as close to the main entrance of the church building as possible. Coordinates should NOT be taken at be taken from viewing areas unless access is somehow restricted.

2). PHOTOS: A minimum of TWO photos is required. One must show the entire building and the other must be a clear close-up of a sign or identifying lettering. (If there is no sign at all, or other restrictions on photography, please write a note in the private message box when submitting the waymark). Other photos showing different views and details of the building are highly encouraged. While we don't expect professional photography, waymarks submitted with underexposed, blurred, skewed or otherwise poor quality photos may be declined. For buildings, one photo should be a clear close-up of a sign or identifying lettering. All photos must be the waymarker's original photos and be placed in the photo gallery for the waymark.

3). DESCRIPTIONS: Keep in mind that the quick description is what people see when browsing, so do your best to give a succinct description that will give people at a glance an overview of the waymark.

In the long description, include any relevant information about the history, architecture, or other notable elements of the building. If you copy and paste, please give proper attribution.

4). VARIABLES: Please make a good faith effort to provide the information for the variables. Most are not required as they may not apply in all instances. Please specify the denomination of the church building in the variables section. If it is not on the drop-down list, please specify the denomination and it will be added. Use the "Unknown" option ONLY as a last resort if you are unable to determine the church's affiliation.

5). WAYMARK NAME: The waymark title must include the full name of the church followed by the city and state or country must be at the end of each waymark name using the following format. (Two letter state abbreviations are preferred for U.S. sites). Example: Fourth Presbyterian Church - Chicago, IL

SPECIAL NOTE: While the details outlined in our category description, and the requirements listed in the posting instructions, cover the MINIMUM elements and standards for all waymarks in this category, each waymark will also be evaluated by a volunteer reviewer for overall quality and appropriateness. If a reviewer deems that there are deficiencies in some aspect of the waymark, the waymark may be either declined or accepted with request for changes and/or additions in either content or format.

Each waymark will be evaluated on its own merits. We will endeavor to be reasonable and flexible while maintaining the quality standards for the category. If there is a disagreement, try to work it out with the evaluating officer, or appeal to the group leader, but we reserve the right to accept or decline a waymark based on our best judgement.

LANGUAGE NOTE: We recognize waymarking as a global hobby and welcome waymarks from all countries. Because of our international scope, we also acknowledge ENGLISH as our lingua franca. English will create the highest level of accessibility globally. All waymarks must have at least a short description in ENGLISH. We encourage bilingual and multilingual waymarks, but one of the languages must be English. We have volunteer translators to help.

Relying on software or internet based translators, such as Babylon and Google Translate, may NOT yield accurate translations that are intelligible. Use these only when there is no alternative. Although we do not expect grammatical perfection, a waymark may be declined if there the English language is not understandable.
