The Assembly Council is responsible for ensuring that the work of the church is carried out efficiently, effectively and within the policies established by the General Assembly. It meets twice annually and is both a coordinating and prophetic body.
The Council coordinates the work of the national agencies of the church, recommends policy, and prepares national budgets all the while seeking a vision for mission and what the church might be in the future. The membership on Assembly Council is drawn from across the country so that it can benefit from the broadest possible viewpoint on proposed changes in policy direction.
The 2016 General Assembly approved the strategic plan for the church which focuses on encouraging, supporting and strengthening congregatons. The Assembly Council is responsible for monitoring and encouraging the implementation of the plan. Currently congregations, agencies and presbyteries are invited to share how they are using the plan in their context.
