Resources for Ruling Elder Involvement at Presbytery & General Assembly

Fellow Ruling Elders, I encourage you in the name of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, to consider your calling as an Elder in the Presbyterian Church in America and serve the church in all her courts. The founding of the PCA owes much to the involvement of Ruling Elders committed to the Word of God. To say the future of the PCA rests in the hands of REs today isn't an overstatement. Do you want a PCA firmly committed to the Word of God, the Westminster Standards, and the orthodox catholic faith once-and-for-all delivered to the saints? Serve the church!

General Assembly News

In this extraordinary time, we are requesting extraordinary understanding from our church family. We are asking that you register now (see link below) for a June 28-July 2 Assembly, but also reserve September 20-24 on your calendars. If pandemic control is not attained in advance of the June dates, you will automatically be registered for GA at the September dates. If you are able to attend in June, but not in September, your registration will be refunded to you upon your request.
