That this General Synod adopt and implement the Restructuring and Membership Proposal for the Council for Native Ministries and that it ensure appropriate revisions to Appendix E of the Handbook of the General Synod. CARRIED Act 59
Notes
Mr. George Axon, Expenditures Committee, indicated that the Committee had a difficult time determining the source of the funds required by this motion. Since there is no Program Budget for 1990, the funds would have to be found by re-allocating work presently being done, or from extra-budetary sources. The allocation of funds would be written into the Program or Assessment Budgets for the first time in 1991.
