For those who might be interested in hearing the nature of the vow these men have taken to Metropolitan, here is the transcript and audio of GFA’s current Canadian office leader’s ordination, who was a staff person in the U.S., now GFA Canada director. This will give you a sense at how significant the vow is. These men promise to submit to Metropolitan’s authority in all matters.
In this case, the Canadian office leader is not a pastor on the field but the director of GFA Canada, this ceremony took place in Dallas, TX.
