The Review and Evaluation Task – Originally, the Review and Evaluation Committee evaluated how well the denominational board was carrying out its mandate from the Annual Conference. In 2005, the scope of review and evaluation was expanded to include total denominational structure and program, including all agencies reportable to Annual Conference. In 2008, the structure of the denomination changed when the General Board and the Association of Brethren Caregivers merged and the Annual Conference Council was replaced by the Leadership Team. In light of those changes, the scope of the committee’s responsibilities and its specific tasks will be reviewed by Standing Committee at the 2014 Conference.
