Will the PCUSA Move Away from Geographic Organization for “Missional Purposes”?

Christianity Today is reporting:

PCUSA-logo“A Presbyterian Church (USA) commission has voted 15-5 to allow non-geographic presbyteries. The move, which would allow churches to choose their own groupings for ‘missional purposes,’ follows defections over the denomination’s vote to ordain noncelibate gays and lesbians. The recommendation needs approval at the General Assembly this June.”

CT has compiled reactions from mostly conservative voices (people like Al Mohler of the Southern Baptist Convention). I’m wondering what more moderate to progressive missional mainliners think of this move (especially my friends in the PCUSA).

Please share your thoughts in the comments!
