Eight Years of Moving Out [of the PCA] (2012-2020)
In light of my previous post, it is perhaps worth noting that of the 92 men who have transferred out of the PCA to a “more peaceful” denomination, 53 were dismissed to the EPC, 9 to the RCA, and 7 to ECO. One reason for the relatively high numbers transferring to the EPC, the RCA, and ECO may be the sheer volume of open pulpits in these relatively large Reformed and Presbyterian denominations outside of NAPARC. Another reason for the high numbers may be the relative difficulty which conservative congregations in these denominations face when seeking for a suitably evangelical and confessionally Reformed pastor. Whatever the case may be, the EPC is by far the most prevalent destination-denomination for ministers who are moving out of the PCA.
