Organization & Structure
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING OF MEMBERS (AGM)
The Annual General Meeting of Members (AGM) is our highest decision-making authority in our administrative structure. The AGM elects members to the Board of Directors and the Church Council. The Bishop and the Vice-Bishop are also elected to take up pastoral and church governing responsibilities. The Bishop is the leader of our Church, as well as the chairperson of the Church Council. He or she has to recommend 10 members from the Church Council to become the heads of the administrative departments in order to lead the church’s development. The Bishop is also the chairperson of the Ministerium who is mainly responsible for matters related to the ordination of pastors and theological and doctrinal issues. The Church Council convenes a meeting once a month to conduct general church ministry. We also have a General Office which is led by executive secretary and staff members to assist the Bishop in daily operations, and execute resolutions passed in the meetings of the Church Council.
