A Presbytery Primer for Ruling Elders

In years past, in my role as Clerk of the Presbytery of Oak Ridges, I have led a brief discussion about the role of the Presbytery and the role of the elder in the Presbytery.  This has been aimed at new-to-the-Presbytery elders, but can be helpful for anyone.

In order to allow elders to attend their committee meetings in September, though, I decided to put together this video, along with a couple of handouts, to expedite the process, and allow for time at the September meeting for any who have questions.

Download these handouts:

An overview of Bourinot’s Rules of Order: Bourinot Overview

Excerpts from the Clerk’s Handbook: Clerk handbook Presbytery
