The Boundaries Commission Reports

YouTube Live Broadcast
January 15, 2018  1pm Eastern, 10am Pacific

 

 

Join us on January 15 for a live broadcast on YouTube with Andrew Richardson, Chair of the Boundaries Commission.

 

Description

As we prepare to move from four courts of the church to three councils, people across the church have been wondering where the regional boundaries will be, and which Regional Council they'll be in. General Council Executive appointed a Commission to make those decisions. The Commission's preliminary report will be issued on January 10, 2018. 

The broadcast on January 15 is an opportunity to hear directly from Andrew Richardson, the Chair of the Commission. Host Lauren Hodson will ask him questions such as:

  • What factors did you use in deciding the new boundaries?
  • How did you try to take into account competing interests?

We'll introduce an interactive web-based map, so that you can see exactly where the boundaries fall in your part of the country.

We'll also take time for questions, using the "chat" feature on YouTube.

Church members are invited to review the report  and send in responses and concerns before the end of January through their church boards, Presbytery or Conference Executives. 

Le pasteur Andrew Richardson, président de la Commission concernant les limites géographiques, animera un événement en direct sur YouTube portant sur les processus de la Commission.
