Unified Committee on Theology and Social Concerns


The Unified Committee on Theology and Social Concerns (UCSC) is a standing committee of the General Assemblies of the Cumberland Presbyterian Churches (CPC & CPCA) and is charged with the responsibility to conduct theological and ethical reflection on matters of importance to the churches and their mission in the cultures and societies in which they serve. The UCTSC was created by action of the two General Assemblies in 1999.

The UCTSC meets semiannually, and produces study papers and resources for the General Assembly and its agencies, and for the use of particular churches and members of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. The Committee is willing to provide resources for Presbyterial Committees on Theology and Social Concerns, local congregations, and other interested groups, as time allows.

Eight members of the Committee are elected by each General Assembly to three-year terms. Members may be reelected twice, and can serve no more than nine years.
