"In this report -- more accurately a 'working paper' -- I make proposals for the next stage of development of the Advisory Council on Missionary Strategy. Although I take full and personal responsibility for the proposals, I want to acknowledge with great gratitude the counsel and help given by a number of colleagues. .... To my thanks, let me add a few preliminary comments. First, these proposals are complementary to others which deal specifically with the Executive Officer's office and staff. .... The fact that the Executive Officer serves two bodies, and that separate groups of interest are involved, should however be kept in mind. A number of suggestions have been made, for example, which really relate to the Lambeth Consultative Body rather than the ACMS. .... Second, there have been -- indeed there still are -- some troubling misconceptions about my own office, and about the ACMS. I mention now four of these, because I think it is useful to clear away as much of the underbrush as possible before we tackle the main issues. The first has to do with 'authority' or 'power' of the ACMS and its Executive Officer. As I wrote to Archbishop Fisher in 1959, when we were exploring all this, it is essential in my view, that the Executive Officer have no constitutional or coercive authority. .... A second apprehension is related to this -- it has to do with money. .... Then, third, there has been a tendency to think of the ACMS as a means by which something is to be done for somebody else. .... Finally (and no doubt in large part because membership of the ACMS is by churches), there had been a measure of apprehension lest it represent a decision by the Anglican Communion against the 'society' principle of missionary support. .... So much by way of clearing the ground. Now I should like to speak about the four main principles which seem to me to be the determining elements in any planning for the ACMS". -- Intro.

"An important sector of my work, these three and a half years, has been the exploration of this new office, its usefulness and its needs. I'm sure that none who supported the proposal at Lambeth, 1958, would have felt able to give more than a partial job description, at best. .... It was understood, I felt, that one of my first duties must be to explore what was required and what was appropriate, if the hopes of the bishops were to be fulfilled. What I now present is is the result of that exploration, at least as far as specific recommendations for the next stage in the development of this office, and the reasons for them. I add four prefatory notes. First, this paper should be read in conjunction with the parallel proposals on the structure of the Advisory Council on Missionary Strategy. Second I would hope that it might be read as having the least possible personal reference to myself. .... The third comment is really only to underline the word 'appropriate' as used two paragraphs before. .... Finally, I believe it is not yet possible to think of the Executive Officer as a position rather than a person." -- Intro.
