VALIDATED MINISTRIES EXTEND THE MINISTRY OF ANY PRESBYTERY

Engaged in a Validated Ministry

A validated ministry shall:
1) Demonstrate conformity with the mission of God’s people in the world as set forth in Holy Scripture, The Book of Confessions and the Book of Order of this church;
2) Serve and aid others, and enable the ministry of others;
3) Give evidence of theologically informed fidelity to God’s Word;
4) Be carried on in accountability for its character and conduct to the presbytery in addition to any organizations, agencies and institutions served; and
5) Include responsible participation in the deliberations, worship and work of the presbytery and in the life of a congregation of this church or a church in correspondence with the PC(USA).

When teaching elders are called to validated ministry beyond the jurisdiction of the church, they shall give evidence of a quality of life that helps to share the ministry of the good news. They shall participate in a congregation, in their presbytery, and in ecumenical relationships and shall be eligible for election to the higher councils of the church and to the boards and agencies of those councils. The presbytery shall review annually the work of all teaching elders engaged in validated ministries outside the congregation. (G-2.0503a)
