Church of God General Assembly 2018 Agenda: IEC and General Overseer Duties

VII.      International Executive Council and General Overseer Duties

RATIONALE: Church of God World Missions is a vital component of everything that the church does in fulfilling and finishing the Great Commission. However, no other provision of the Minutes mandates that a specific portfolio be assigned to a member of the International Executive Committee.

We recommend:

  1. That page 68, S5. INTERNATIONAL EXECUTIVE COUNCIL, III. Duties and Authorities, Item 8, be amended by striking the word “shall” and inserting the words “be authorized to.”

 So as to read:

The general overseer, with the International Executive Council, be authorized to give one of his assistants the World Missions portfolio and assign his duties and authorities.

We recommend:

  1. That page 73, S7. GENERAL OVERSEER, II. Duties and Authorities, Item 5, be amended by inserting the words “be authorized to” before the word “give.” So as to read:

Together with the International Executive Council, be authorized to give one of his assistants the World Missions portfolio and assign his duties and authorities

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:
1.      Is this measure proportional to the international growth of the Church of God?

2.      Does the item allow for hearing of congregations at the periphery of the denomination?

3.      Does the measure compliment or contradict other agenda items on international ministry awareness and denominational growth?
