Reconsider Level of Support of National Council of Churches (81064-IC-NonDis)

The 2008 General Conference of the United Methodist Church instructs the General Council on Finance and Administration, in consultation with the General Commission on Christian Unity and Inter-religious Concerns (GCCUIC), to develop and implement a plan to ensure that the NCCCUSA’s percentage of total member communion income from United Methodism does not exceed by more than 10 per cent the portion  of members of  NCCCUSA-affiliated communions that are U.S. United Methodists.  For example, if the United Methodist membership in the U.S. constitutes 20% of the total membership of the NCCCUSA, then the total contribution by the United Methodist Church to the NCCCUSA shall not exceed 22%.
