2016 Moderatorial Candidates Handbook

Dear Commissioner or Advisory Delegate:

As outlined in the Manual of the General Assembly, one of the responsibilities of the Stated Clerk is to provide to commissioners and advisory delegates an electronic packet of information about each candidate who is standing for Moderator. This year we have two sets of persons standing for Co-Moderator.

This booklet contains the following information for all candidates standing for Co- Moderators of the 222nd General Assembly (2016): a photograph, biographical sketch, personal statement regarding the candidate’s sense of call to the office, a written presentation by the presbytery having jurisdiction over the candidate (if that presbytery has endorsed him or her), and the candidate’s responses to a questionnaire developed by the Stated Clerk.

The candidates have chosen the layout for their material within the space limitations provided.

The election of the Co-Moderators will take place during the plenary session of the General Assembly on Saturday evening, June 18, 2016. The process that will be used can be found in Standing Rule H.1.b(4).

On Saturday morning, June 18, from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., space will be provided in the pre-function A area of the Oregon Convention Center (outside the entrance to the exhibit hall) for Co-Moderator candidates or their representatives to meet commissioners, advisory delegates, and other interested parties. Draped partitions are provided and information can be displayed or distributed from these booths.

God’s blessings to you as you continue to pray and prepare for the General Assembly.

In Christ,

Gradye Parsons
Stated Clerk of the General Assembly,
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
