Waters, Guy Prentiss
Over the past several years, interest in the biblical rationale, organizational procedures, and growing historical record of the Presbyterian Church in America's (PCA) governance has spiked. Many new and veteran elders are eager to engage with the work of the Church beyond the congregational level (i.e., in presbyteries and the General Assembly). However, the formal procedures for deliberation can be intimidating to the newly engaged presbyter. With the help of experienced parliamentarian and PCA Teaching Elder Jacob D. Gerber provided in this booklet, you can enter into the discourse as a conscientious presbyter and undershepherd of Christ.
