Conference Committee on Mission Personnel (80403-GM-¶632.4b24)

¶632.4b(24) be amended as follows:
To cooperate with the General Board of Global Ministries in the recruitment and support of missionaries and to cooperate with the appropriate conference units such as a Conference Committee on Mission Personnel or an equivalent body in the promotion and recruitment of persons for health and welfare service careers and other Church-related occupations.

Rationale

To assist the annual conference Board of Global Ministries or equivalent structure in accomplishing the tasks and functions related to mission personnel that are already in the Discipline, many conferences already have a Committee on Mission Personnel.  These helpful bodies should be placed within the appropriate context of the Discipline.
