GA 2023 RE COMMISSIONER CERTIFICATION
Ruling Elders must be elected and endorsed by the Session of a congregation to serve as Commissioners to the General Assembly. A church may elect the same number of Ruling Elder Commissioners to General Assembly as it does to its Presbytery. Once a congregation’s Ruling Elder Commissioners are elected, the Clerk of Session must submit the Ruling Elder Commissioner Certification Form no later than May 15 of each year. Without this certification, a Ruling Elder will not receive voting credentials at the Assembly. All Teaching Elders who are active members of their presbyteries are eligible to vote and need no additional certification.
IMPORTANT: Completing this form does not register your Ruling Elders for the General Assembly. They will need to register individually through the “Click to Register” button above and on www.epc.org/ga2023. Online registration becomes available on April 1, 2023.
