Apply to Serve as a Commissioner or Young Adult Advisory Delegate to the 226th General Assembly
The General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) meets every other year in even-numbered years. It consists of commissioners – teaching elders (ministers) and ruling elders (active on session or not) and Young Adult Advisory Delegates (either ordained or not) – elected by each of our 167 presbyteries. Each Iowa presbytery sends one teaching elder commissioner, one ruling elder commissioner, and one Young Adult Advisory Delegate (YAAD) to the next General Assembly. All teaching elders, ruling elders and young adults may apply to serve.
The GA is full of activities: business sessions, committee meetings, an exhibit hall, daily worship services, and mission tours. The GA pays or reimburses the expenses of GA service.
The 226th General Assembly will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, from June 25 to July 4, 2024.
At their fall meetings, presbyteries will elect one teaching elder to serve as a commissioner (and one alternate), one ruling elder to serve as a commissioner (and one alternate), and one Young Adult Advisory Delegate (YAAD) (and one alternate).
