Annual Meeting of the CCS Community
The annual general meeting of the Centre for Christian Studies was held on Thursday, February 18th at 6:00 pm CST (4:00 in BC, 7:00 in Ontario, etc.). About 25 people from coast-to-coast took part through conference.
The AGM featured worship, designed by Barbara Lloyd and led by gwen McAllister, as well as a brief covenanting with our new Program Staff members.
Tim Sale (Finance chair) facilitated a discussion of CCS’s budget and financial records, and a motion to merge CCS’s various bursary funds into one, and to recognize the founders of those bursaries on the CCS website.
Marcie Gibson explained the plans for a review and redesign of CCS’s educational program, and Eric Tusz-King and Ann Naylor led a discussion of the United Church of Canada’s “One Ministry” remit and its implications for the church, diaconal ministry, and the Centre.
Folks in Winnipeg gathered with staff for a potluck prior to the meeting, and another group gathered around a speakerphone in Ottawa.
The AGM was a good time of community, grounded in a shared commitment to CCS. Thank you everyone you took part.
The Annual Report for the year 2015 is now available. (Opens in a new tab.)
(Last year our AGM was disrupted by a noisy feedback loop on the conference call. That didn’t happen this year, thank goodness. Technology. Gotta love it.)
