Mat opened meeting with Scripture reading from Psalms 54:1 and led in prayer.
Mat presented minutes and asked for questions. Jerry Miller made motion to accept minutes as presented and Jim Biehle seconded it. Motion carried.
In Melissa’s absence Mat addressed finances. Mat noted that the checks that are sent out to the churches we support be sent out after the money has come in instead of before. We are on a quarterly system now. If any partners are not ok with this system we will address this issue with each one separately. Now each church will get their support March, June, September, and December instead of paying before we have the money.
Grace and Truth will roll off in 2017 of our 3 year commitment.
