Seeking Commissioners to General Assembly 2024

Jul 7, 2023

It’s time to elect commissioners to the 226th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA). The hybrid assembly will begin with online committee work June 25-29, then meet in person for plenary sessions June 30-July 4 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Los Ranchos will send two Ruling Elder and two Teaching Elder commissioners and one Young Adult Advisory Delegate (YAAD). YAADs must be between 18 and 23 years of age at the time of the Assembly.

 The election will take place at our Saturday September 23rd Presbytery Gathering, where all candidates will be asked to speak for up to two minutes about why they would like to represent Los Ranchos at the biannual business meeting of the denomination. The two Ruling Elder and two Teaching Elder nominees receiving the most votes will be elected as GA Commissioners; the next highest vote getter in either “elder” category will be the alternate. The YAAD nominee receiving the most votes will be elected; the nominee receiving the second highest number of votes will be the YAAD alternate.
