On the evening of Saturday, June 30, candidates for moderator of the 220th General Assembly in Pittsburgh will be placed in nomination, will deliver five-minute speeches and then will respond to questions from the commissioners and advisory delegates. Then the advisory delegates will vote their preferences — as advice — and the commissioners will cast their votes for the person who will moderate their deliberations and serve as chief ambassador for the denomination through the next two years. If no one musters more than half the votes, the ballots will be cast again (and again) until one of them does.
The Presbyterian Outlook will present the “coming-out party” for the candidates in a luncheon at noon on election day (see ad on p. 19).
In order to introduce the candidates to the commissioners, delegates and all Outlook readers, we have posed four questions for each of them to address.
