I came across info saying that in 2011, EPC allowed a congregation to move from their presbytery (boundary lines) to another one (outside of boundary lines) due to the former (Central South) forbidding the ordination of women. This particular congregation supported women ordination and wanted to unite with a presbytery-friendly one.

Okay, that is how it works. However, I notice that the two EPC churches on the coast have been placed in the Central South Presbytery upon leaving the PCUSA. I know for a fact that they have women elders, so I assume the churches support women ordination. I now wonder if the Central South Presbytery has changed its views over the last year, or what will happen?

I was under the impression that each individual congregation within the EPC could do whatever they wanted and that the presiding presbytery had no authority to demand that a particular congregation adhere to their decisions. Being a "loose" denomination, there is much "freedom" given to the individual congregations. The EPC uses the old "lowest common denominator theology" as its base. rolleyes2
