The Cumberland Presbyterian Magazine has been designated the “publication of record” for the Cumberland Presbyterian Church by the General Assembly of that body.

The “publication of record” refers to a publicly available periodical which has been authorized by a judicatory to publish public or legal notices. The Cumberland Presbyterian has been established as the “publication of record” by official action of the Assembly and publication of notices within the Cumberland Presbyterian, whether by the Assembly, other judicatories, or by private parties, is considered sufficient to comply with legal requirements for public notice.

Middle judicatories are obligated by the Assembly to provide synopses of their actions for publication in the  Cumberland Presbyterian. Publication of the minutes of a judicatory does not fulfill this obligation.

Signed editorials and articles reflect the opinions of the writer and not necessarily those of the administrative agency, the Ministry Council, of the General Assembly. We welcome feedback from our readers through letters to the editor or as articles submitted in accordance with the submissions policy.

Submissions are welcomed, however, we reserve the right to accept or reject any material submitted for any reason, Anonymous submissions will not be accepted. All material submitted becomes the intellectual property of the Communications Ministry Team to use as they see fit. Contributors will generally not be compensated and never unless arrangements for compensation have been made in advance.
