"Council of General Synod (CoGS) has approved a covenant that allows the Resources for Mission (RFM) department to approach donors for large gifts on behalf of the ministries of General Synod. The governing bodies of all separately incorporated ministries, including the Primate's World Relief and Development fund (PWRDF), the Anglican Foundation and the Pension Office Corporation, have also approved the agreement. The covenant is 'very important' said Vianney (Sam) Carriere, director of RFM. 'It's generally recognized in the area of fundraising that the fewer appeals made on behalf of an organization, the better. We've been hearing for years that there are too many appeals' coming from General Synod, and these can be 'confusing and irritating' for donors, he added. The agreement is limited to 'large gifts that are directed towards specific significant areas of ministry', said RFM's written report. 'This work .. is .. now being done more intentionally and with renewed emphasis'. The covenant does not involve the annual appeals of the various ministries, but Carriere expressed the hope that it will 'open the door to other things that we can do together'."

Anglican Church adopts plan with focus on local development

ST. CATHARINES, ONT. (June 3 [sic June 4], 2004)
Members of the Anglican Church of Canada's General Synod have adopted a plan that focuses strongly on the development of new resources and church work at the local level.
The plan, entitled "Loving God's World, Strengthening the Church [sic i.e. Serving God's World, Strengthening the Church]", would maintain most of the work the church is now doing both nationally and internationally, and also add work giving the national church a stronger role in assisting parishes at the local level.
It would be phased in as resources for its implementation become available.
The plan is called a "framework" rather than a strategic plan to emphasize flexibility in its implementation.
The plan, which would be in effect until 2010, identifies seven major priorities in the next six years:
- Strengthening and developing Anglican identity;
- The development of local communities through networks and other programs;
- More effective communication of church stories;
- Building and strengthening relationships with indigenous peoples
- Developing and strengthening the church's financial capacity;
- Developing partnerships to better advocate for social justice, and
- Continued support for the church's international partners.
The General Synod is the national embodiment of the church's 30 dioceses and generally focuses on work that is best done or that can only be done at the national level.
Synod members also approved an accompanying document "Letting Down the Nets" that envisages a renewed emphasis on fostering planned giving initiatives and on assisting the local church with stewardship development.
The Anglican General Synod is the church's highest governing and legislative body. It is made up of lay people, deacons, priests and bishops elected from each of the church's 30 dioceses, and meets every three years. The synod has been meeting in this Southern Ontario city to conduct the church's business for the past eight days.
The General Synod gathering concludes today with the installation as Primate of Archbishop Andrew Hutchison of Montreal. He will be formally installed as Primate at a church service at Hamilton's Christ's Church Cathedral this afternoon.
The General Synod elected Archbishop Hutchison Primate on Monday [31 May 2004]. He succeeds Archbishop Michael Peers who served in the senior position for 18 years and who retired last February.

"With his background in economics, Archdeacon John M. Robertson is well schooled to help Anglicans plan their gifts in creative ways that reduce their tax burden and optimize benefits to themselves and the church. As national gift planning officer, Robertson has spent nearly two decades in gift planning and stewardship education. He's facilitated millions of dollars in donations to sustain the mission work of parishes and dioceses, as well as General Synod and its national partners. Most fulfilling for him is 'helping individual donors and their families in making gifts for the work of God through the church that makes a significant difference in the lives of others, both now and in the future'. He is also gratified by working with clergy and lay teams in developing effective stewardship education and gift-planning initiatives". [Text of entire article.]

Advertisement from Anglican Church of Canada Resources for Mission Dept. "Margaret read with interest our Invitation for 2013 Resources for Mission advertisement in last month's Anglican Journal (page 4). She really had not idea of the breadth of General Synod's ministry and program -- and how essential this work really is. After reading SEEDTIME: Ministry and Mission, she has decided to amend her will to include not only her parish church and diocese, but also General Synod. She is making an undesignated bequest to General Synod, asking that when the time comes the officers decide how best to allocate her gift".
