Bronwen Boswell named Acting Stated Clerk of the general assembly of the PC (USA)

Bronwen Boswell has been named Acting Stated Clerk of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA). Boswell, who is currently general presbyter and stated clerk at Shenandoah Presbytery in Virginia, will serve until the election of a new stated clerk, the chief ecclesial officer of the denomination, at the PC (USA) general assembly in Salt Lake City, Utah, next summer.

Boswell is filling the unexpired term of J. Herbert Nelson, II, who recently announced his decision to step down at the end of June and will officially begin her new duties on July 10.

“My task, as I see it, as Acted Stated Clerk, is to be a bridge in this between time of elected Stated Clerks, preparing for general assembly and working with the committees that will need to report to GA next year . . .” Boswell said.

“My background as a presbytery stated clerk, mid-council leader, and interim pastor, along with my years as a parliamentarian for GA committees and plenary sessions should stand me in good stead as I seek to lead in this interim time with energy, intelligence, imagination and love.” —Presbyterian News Service
