The 2017 General Assembly considered an overture about term-service for elders. The overture contemplates amending the stipulated length of the term individuals serve under this model of eldership. The Assembly asked the Clerks to survey sessions of the church about their experience with term-service.
All sessions, whether they use the term-service or life-service model, are encouraged to complete the survey by February 28, 2018.
For questions about this survey, please contact Don Muir, Deputy Clerk at 1-800-619-7301 ext. 223.
