Act 5, 2010 (V) – Act anent Nomination of Moderator. 17th May 2010.

The General Assembly appoint a Special Committee, consisting of the Conveners and Vice-Conveners, Chairmen and Vice-Chairmen of the Standing Committees and Boards, along with the retiring Moderator as Convener, to nominate a Moderator of the next General Assembly. They instruct the Assembly Clerk to prepare a list of all Ministers of the Free Church of Scotland of at least twenty years’ standing who are members of Presbyteries or are serving with the International Missions Board and who have not previously indicated they do not wish to be considered for the office of Moderator, and to circulate the list to each member of the Special Committee requesting that they mark the names on the said list in order of preference. When these lists are returned the Clerk shall (1) arrange the list in the order of preference expressed by members of the Special Committee: (2) approach the ministers whose names appear on the list in the order preferred until one indicates his willingness to accept office. This name shall then be submitted to the members of the Committee for their approval, and when so approved shall be publicly intimated to the Commission of Assembly appointed to meet in October for their approval.
