Deputy General Secretary (80141-GA-¶703.7b)

Amend ¶703.7.b) as follows:
¶703. Definitions, Structures, and Titles
7.b) Deputy General Secretary—the chief staff officer assigned to oversight of a major programmatic or administrative unit(s), or with major programmatic or administrative responsibilities  with a general board or council .

Rationale

Those whose career is in full time service in the general church should not find their path limited by having found a calling in ministry on a commission if there is missional need for a deputy GS. With this change, all agencies will have access to all GCFA factoring categories.
