The Presbytery of James will ordain “Jess Cook” to the Gospel ministry at the Ginter Park Presbyterian Church in Richmond, Virginia, on June 29. Jess Cook claims to be “non-binary,” meaning that she identifies with neither the male nor female gender. This presbytery represents more than 100 churches and is one of the largest in the Presbyterian Church USA, and Cook will be the first non-binary person ever ordained by the denomination.
Cook will be ordained as a “Minister of Word and Sacrament.”
An LGBT advocacy group named More Light Presbyterians, which is designed to influence the inclusion of LGBTQ people into the PCUSA, bragged on the decision, saying, “We rejoice that Jess’ visibility as a non-binary faith leader has already made room for LGBTQIA+ people to see themselves as image-bearers of the divine.”
Cook is a woman who is confused about her gender. She is native of East Texas and holds a Master of Divinity from Union Presbyterian Seminary, a Master of Fine Arts in Photography from the University of North Texas, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art from Baylor.
