The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) organizes its many congregations into presbyteries and then into synods. Presbyteries are the district governing bodies which are made up of various congregations. Each presbytery also belongs to a regional governing body, known as a synod. Synods act as a form of administration between presbyteries and the General Assembly. There are currently 16 Synods in the PC(USA).
