From the GA website - The 219th General Assembly’s Church Orders and Ministry Committee has approved sending an overture to the full Assembly calling for new language in the Book of Order’s ordination standards.
The overture amends G-6.0106b, which states that church officers must be faithful in marriage between a man and a woman or chaste in singleness.
The recommended wording would replace the existing text with language that gives ordaining or installing governing bodies the responsibility of determining if candidates meet the standards for office. Candidates would be examined based on calling, gifts, preparation and suitability. Governing bodies – guided by Scripture and the confessions – would also determine candidates’ ability and commitment to fulfilling requirements stated in the constitutional questions for ordination and installation.
