Refer the following to GCFA
The General Council on Finance and Administration will form a study group in conjunction with the Connectional Table , to explore alternative structures for the apportioned general funds of the United Methodist Church. The GCFA is to recommend to the 2012 General Conference a structure of these funds that more nearly conforms to the missional focus of the denomination. In addition, this recommendation will include the methods by which these funds will be apportioned to the annual conferences. Representation in this study group should include, in part, jurisdictional conference, annual conference, and local church perspectives.
