Administrative history

In 1973, the Congregational Support Committee took over the responsibilities of the former Congregational Life and Work Committee. Tasks assigned to the Congregational Support Committee were divided between the two Arms of Administration (including all budgeting, funding and financial administration tasks) and Program and Leadership. The main assignment of the Administrative Arm, also called Finance, was to review requests on the Conference Block Grant and Property Budget and to send forward requests under the ceiling of the Conference Block Grant. The Administrative Arm also oversaw the financial administration of former Home Missions initiatives including aid-receiving charges, supply and immigration ministries. The Program and Leadership Arm was responsible for the administration of the Lay Development and Bursary Funds as well as Conference Programming funds, and the Conference Resource Centre. They also oversaw the expenditures of or provided resources for C. G. I. T. and other youth programs, Conference Camping and Crossreach. In addition, Program and Leadership was responsible for identifying social issue priorities, initiating social action and lobbying efforts, co-ordinating outreach and setting educational priorities, and other Conference program development. In keeping with the new emphasis on grass roots program creation, the Congregational Support Committee also worked to facilitate the transfer of responsibility for program development and administration from the Conference to the Presbyteries and congregations.

Co-ordinating Chairmen of the Congregational Support Committee included Bruce Gunn. Convenors included Ms. Mary Rance and Mrs. Anne Mcaulay (Administration) and Mrs. Marion Child (Program & Leadership).

Custodial history

Scope and content

Items described here include a folder that was previously attributed to the Congregational Life and Work Committee and described as part of Conference General Administration. This consists of documents acquired or created by Rev. Raymond Smith (Conference Administrative Support Staff from 1972 to 1980), that pertain to plans for the operation of the Congregational Support Committee, especially the Leadership Development Arm. A second folder was accessioned in 1996 as part of a larger accession of the records of Conference administration that had been stored at the Conference Offices at 120 Maryland. The contents consist of minutes of the Congregational Support Committee and its constituent sub-committees.
