Join Outlook editor Teri McDowell Ott in a conversation with the candidates standing for moderator of the 226th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

For years, the Presbyterian Outlook has been a trusted space for providing information and fostering conversations about the General Assembly and PC(USA) governance. We continue that tradition this year.

Our webinar is an opportunity to hear directly from the moderator candidates about their visions for our church’s future. For commissioners preparing for GA, this insight will be incredibly valuable as you prepare to cast your vote. For the public, this conversation will provide important context for what the next several years may have in store for the denomination.

During the webinar, we also name and presented the 2024 E.T. Thompson Award to Brian Blount. Named after the Outlook’s founder, the E.T. Thompson Award is the functional equivalent of a lifetime achievement award in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Past recipients include Heath Rada, Barbara Wheeler, John M. Buchanan, and Joseph Small, among others.

Joining us for the webinar and answering your questions will be:

CeCe Armstrong — associate pastor of St. James Presbyterian Church is in Charleston, South Carolina
Tony Larson — pastor of Trinity Presbyterian Church in Surfside, South Carolina

Danny Morales — a hospice chaplain and the pastor of New Covenant Presbyterian Church in Liberty City, Florida
Marian McClure Taylor — recently retired pastor at South Frankfort Presbyterian Church in Frankfort, Kentucky, and former director of the Worldwide Ministries Division of the Presbyterian Mission Agency
