Prologue
The Reverend Canon Ansley Tucker and the Reverend Paul Robinson members of the General Synod Ministry Committee brought two resolutions (from the Committee) to the House of Bishops about the Advisory Committee on Postulants for Ordination (ACPO). Their purpose was to receive the House of Bishops' input about the resolutions (#3-2-84 re. ACPO contemplated for Canadian Forces personnel and #4-2-84 re. Categories for use by ACPO assessors in relation to prospective postulants) to be taken back to the Ministry Committee, before bringing the resolution to the National Executive Committee for approval.

3.1 ACPO
Faith, Worship and Ministry received a copy of the House of Bishops' Memorandum dated 21 May 1996 "Recommendations to the Council of General Synod re ACPO". Out of the discussion of this memo arose a proposal from Faith, Worship and Ministry regarding the House of Bishops' recommendation that the Council of General Synod establish a consultation regarding the role of ACPO, models of ministry, and lines of accountability. It is offered to the Council as a suggestion as to how to respond to the House of Bishops' request:
PROPOSAL FOR PROCESS OF CONSULTATION ON MINISTRY AND THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION
Purpose: To review and propose revisions to the national standards of the Anglican Church of Canada regarding ordained ministry and theological education.
Process:
1. Review the conversations and findings of the OPCOTE ministry conference at Huron College in May 1996.
2. Survey present standards, practices, and conversations in the various dioceses of the Anglican Church of Canada, and representative other branches of the Anglican Communion and representative other communions.
3. Define questions and promote conversations regarding ordained ministry (including non-stipendiary ordained ministry, vocational diaconate, shared ministry, local ministry and other new forms of ordained ministry) and theological education (including recruitment, discernment, and evaluation) of the following constituencies of the Anglican Church of Canada: bishops; executive archdeacons; heads and chief academic officers of theological colleges; ACPO secretaries; representatives of persons involved in new forms of ordained ministry.
4. Convene regionally based conferences involving bishops, executive archdeacons, heads and chief academic officers of theological colleges, ACPO secretaries, persons involved in new forms of ordained ministry, and lay people, being sure to include persons from groups often unheard or marginalized.
5. Write a report with recommendations for changes in canons and new canons.
6. Convene a national conference involving three persons from each of the five conferences in #4, to discuss the report and recommendations.
7. Present the findings and recommendations to General Synod in 2001.
The Committee also considered recommendations 2 and 3 from the House, noting that there is an inconsistency between them. The second recommendation might more properly read "ACPO be considered by all concerned as discernment for postulancy for the professional model of priesthood".

Moved by: Bishop Ingham
Seconded by: Bishop Hutchison
While the House of Bishops, in reissuing and updating the 1979 Guidelines, states its commitment to the principles contained therein, nevertheless the House understands that individual bishops, acting with their diocesan synods, may wish to set these guidelines aside in specific instances and for pastoral reasons, and members of the House agree not to challenge the right of any bishop and/or diocese to do so.
