The Stated Clerk Nomination Committee of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has begun its work. It is to bring a nomination for the denomination’s highest ecclesiastical officer, the Stated Clerk of the General Assembly, to the 222nd General Assembly (2016) in Portland, Oregon, June 18–25, 2016.

It is the committee’s hope and prayer to bring to the assembly the strongest possible nominee for this important position, and therefore it is seeking assistance as it discerns the qualities and characteristics most needed in this office. Please take a few minutes to complete a short survey by no later than August 14. Just click on this link or copy it into your browser:

The committee will meet next in early September. Please know it will consider carefully the responses and comments. The committee covets, and will be grateful for, prayers as it engages in this work for the church.
