Welcome to the blogspot of the Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance (PB&F). This site is offered to the Church as a way in which PB&F can receive comments on the Draft Budget of the Executive Council. This draft budget was approved by the Executive Council and was submitted to PB&F by Executive Council in January 2012.
PB&F offers this blogspot as a place for the Church to comment on the Executive Council Draft Budget. Additional opportunities for comment will be available at the General Convention in July when PB&F will host three open hearings.
Presentations on the Draft Budget of the Executive Council will also be made at the meetings of Provincial Synod, deputies are urged to attend these meetings.
In July the information shared on this site as well as the testimony received at the three General Convention hearings will help to inform the budget that is presented to General Convention for approval.
We ask your prayers and continued support as we begin this enormous task.
Yours in Christ,
Diane Pollard, Chair,
Joint Committee on Program, Budget and Finance
