Bookmark and Share


The 219th General Assembly (2010) Mission Coordination Committee began its work on Monday by tackling the first of several funding items.

By a 43-10 vote, the committee endorsed a recommendation from the General Assembly Mission Council (GAMC) to end on Dec. 31, 2013, the practice of Mission Partnership Funds – monies distributed by the General Assembly to synods for redistribution to presbyteries.

The committee also unanimously defeated an overture from Sierra Blanca Presbytery that would distribute undesignated funds from the Presbyterian Foundation directly to individual presbyteries.

In reviewing a proposed extension of the Advocacy Committee for Racial Ethnic Concerns (ACREC), the committee voted 32-18-0 to send a revised motion to the assemly, which deletes a proposed study group and brings a recommendation to the 220th General Assembly (2012).
