Administration Committee members serve in their capacity during their term on the Executive Committee, meeting as necessary to carry out the business and affairs of the latter group during the interim periods between the Executive Committee’s four meetings during the year.

Jojo Thomas

Actions of the Administration Committee are considered reflective of the Executive Committee unless an action is deemed contrary to a specific policy or instruction of the Executive Committee. In addition, the Administration Committee presents a report at each Executive Committee meeting, covering matters such as administration, finance, and personnel.

The Administration Committee holds its first meeting of the year today, Jan. 8, at the Missions and Ministry Center.

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly identified the GBC president as Robby Childs, not Robby Foster. The Index regrets the error.
