american presbytery short report for


Special Called Meeting for June 27, 2006

Reconvened from Special Called Meeting of December 29, 2005

Meeting by telephone conference

Prepared by Elder Jerry Clay

The American Presbytery reconvened June 27th at 8:10 PM. Most of the participants joined by teleconference.

There were a number of visitors present, including some from outside the CRPC who are interested in the possibility of joining.

The appeals of Jim and Beverly Brown were sustained, and they were restored to membership in the church. Mr. Brown's complaint was sustained. In sustaining his complaint, the American Presbytery declared that the congregational presbytery in Manawa, Wisconsin, had in essence ceased to function as a CRPC congregational presbytery, and replaced it with a temporary Session. The American Presbytery voted to proceed with judicial charges against Pastor Brian Schwertley; these charges allege violations of the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 9th Commandments, in conjunction with his pastoral activities.

Justin Stodghill was introduced as forthcoming associate pastor at CRPC, Milton, Wisconsin.
