November  /  December   2014
PNC   Committee   Update

  1. The PNC developed and released a survey; 374 members responded to the survey, with the majority responding on-line. There were more than 300 additional comments provided by members to the survey. The results of the survey and the additional comments were incorporated in the Ministry Information Form (“MIF”) and will be considered during the entire process by the PNC
  2. The PNC held two Open Forum meetings (informational meetings) for the members and a total of approximately 90 - 100 members attended. A verbal status was provided by Chairperson, Bob Hazlett; questions were then asked by the attendees and answered by the PNC and Berry Long, the Central Florida Presbytery Committee on Ministry liaison, at the December 9 Open Forum.
