Ongoing Ministry Study (80269-MH-¶1406-!)

Amend ¶ 1406 to add:  
  
12. In cooperation with representatives from the General Board of Discipleship, the General Commission on Christian Unity and Inter-religious Concerns, the Council of Bishops, and the network of young seminarians, to engage in an ongoing review, evaluation and dialogue on the ordering of ministry that addresses historical and contemporary issues related to ecclesiology, ordination, and conference membership.  
Recommended budget: $100,000

Rationale

Rather than continuation of a Study of Ministry Commission, the Commission’s work needs to be included as part of the ongoing work of the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry.
