The second annual Evening of Confessional Concern and Prayer will be held at the 43rd General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in America on Monday, June 8. The PCA General Assembly is meeting in Chattanooga, Tenn., June 8-12, 2015.

The Evening of Confessional Concern and Prayer will meet in the Convention Center, Ballroom “H” from 7-9 P.M. It will be a time to share and listen to the conservative, confessional perspective on lingering or new issues within the PCA. There will be a time to pray together prior to the opening of the General Assembly. The topics and speakers for this meeting include:

  1. PCA Issues by Sean Lucas. Lucas will be asking questions and offering suggestions as to what might be ways to improve the Standing Judicial Commission (SJC).
  2. Confessional Issues by Jon Payne. Payne will be addressing the significance of confessional statements in how we operate as a denomination, especially in light of overtures 2 and 9 that are requesting General Assembly to erect a study committee to recommend changes to the Westminster Standards regarding the Sabbath.
  3. PCA Trajectory by Richard Phillips. Phillips will do a brief analysis of the overall direction of the PCA moving from its inception to current trends. He will touch on issues like transformationism, the influence of BioLogos, egalitarianism and other relevant topics.
  4. Cultural Issues by David Strain. Strain will be addressing the issue of same-sex attraction not so much from a cultural analysis perspective, but more so from a point of view of how the church should respond. How can PCA churches, conservative, confessional men, guard themselves from doing that for which the Pharisees were condemned in which is to despise “sinners” while considering themselves “righteous?”
