Commissioners to the 38th General Assembly approved a proposed amendment to the EPC Book of Government regarding the role of Commissioned Pastor.
As a proposed constitutional amendment, the Overture now goes to the EPC’s presbyteries for discussion and vote. If approved by 11 of the 14 EPC presbyteries (75 percent), the amendment comes to the 39th General Assembly for ratification. The 2019 Assembly will be held at Cherry Hills Community Church in suburban Denver, Colo.
Church sessions should download and distribute the Descending Overture for discussion in their presbytery’s fall meetings, in preparation for voting in each presbytery’s winter meeting.
