2023 Advocacy Proposals

Our Advocacy Pillar has been looking at a few important issues over the past year.  Here are two of the proposals the pillars would like your input on. 

CDM Employment

One  topic is the recent changes by the General Council Executive decision to alter the possible parameters of Congregationally Designated Ministers employment.  We would ask you to look over the proposal here:

Cluster Proposal

At the heart of our Church’s continued commitment to the vitality of local communities of faith following our shift to the Three Council model was an expressed intent to nurture the creation of clusters and networks. These clusters and networks would connect communities of faith and individuals as “communities of common interest, mission, and support” and were expected to be “organically formed”. 

We are concerned that few if any clusters and networks have arisen organically in Region 15, and that this is limiting our health and capacity for faithful mission and service at the local level.

“I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

– Romans 12:21-2
