Presbyterian identity, environmental issues, and the election of at least two top denominational leaders will be among the matters of business topping the agenda of the 222nd General Assembly (2016) of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
Participants of the 2015 Polity Conference got a preview of next year’s assembly in plenary sessions today at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, site of next year’s assembly that will be held June 18–25.
“We have some big issues coming to this assembly,” said Gradye Parsons, Stated Clerk of the General Assembly. He encouraged presbytery leaders to train their commissioners well before sending them to Portland. “Help those folks be prepped so they can bring their best.”
