All 12 Council members were present, with four tuning in online. On Monday, Chairman Len Martin welcomed everyone and discussed the agenda, before Victor Kubik provided the President’s Report. He discussed the 2020 Feast of Tabernacles, in which UCG had originally planned 62 sites worldwide. Ultimately there were 15-20 official sites where members gathered daily, with another 15-20 satellite sites.
Mr. Kubik also provided a brief update on ABC, which has a class of 20 students this year. Two church buildings have been purchased in Washington and Virginia. Planned Giving articles are being published in each issue of United News and a website is being finalized.
Operation managers also provided updates. Ministerial and member services statistics and media updates from the December meetings can be found on page 14 of this issue. The 2020 financial audit statements are located on pages 15-18.
In the following days of Council meetings, updates were provided from various committees, including the Strategic Planning and Finance Committee, Roles and Rules Committee, and Education Committee. The Strategic Plan, Operation Plan and Budget was reviewed as well.
Thank you for your prayers regarding these meetings.
