Are Tiers Still an Option

This summer The Fellowship of Presbyterians suggested four options, or tiers, that congregations might pursue in response to changes in the PC(USA). You can read a more detailed description HERE, but in short the tiers are:

1) Remain in the PC(USA).

2) Create new “overlay,” or non-geographical presbyteries based on theological “like mindedness.”

3) Create dual leadership structures within existing presbyteries

4) Create a New Reformed Body

Since August, the PC(USA) has apparently ruled out tier 2. Tier 3, while being explored, has met with little enthusiasm. In this latest news from The Fellowship of Presbyterians, the leadership reflects on what options remain as they prepare for the Covenanting Conference in Orlando in January.
