excerpted from the Minutes of Illiana Presbytery, 6 November 1982, page 7-8:
"In recognition that Dr. Harold G. Stigers has faithfully fulfilled his calling of God as a Teaching Elder in Illiana Presbytery over the past 7 years, in the following ways among others -
Moderator of Illiana Presbytery; researcher of Biblical history, geography, and geology; archaeologist in Biblical lands; author of monographs in Old Testament Studies used and appreciated by many in Presbytery; member of the commission of the installation of David Robinson, chairman of the committee for the ordination of Jeff Rakes; shepherd and encourager of churches and ministers in the Presbytery; and initiator of abundant helpful input to the discussions of Presbytery.
In recognition that Dr. Stigers ministry has been blessed of God to the edification of individual believers, churches, Illiana Presbytery, and the church at large;
We, therefore, do hereby express our deep appreciation for Dr. Stigers presence and witness among us and pray God's blessing upon him as we grant his request to have his status changed to that of Teaching Elder honorably retired. Furthermore, we express our desire for his continued fellowship and participation as his health allows.
