Short Summary of the Purpose and Vision
for the EP&E Board As Described in the Faith & Practice:
This nine-member board has been tasked with partnering with the General Superintendent in assisting local churches in spiritual growth and renewal/revitalization, pastoral and church relations, and church planting.
Their areas of concern include: equipping local church elders, providing available instruments to assist local churches in the spiritual nurture of a congregation. The EP & E Board members also come alongside the local church to bring reconciliation and resolution of conflicts which have not been resolved within the local congregation.
