The MEOR oversight committee – the Forum – met virtually on 10 March and 11 March for strategic planning. Mr. Ivan Samdaan from the Methodist Church in Southern Africa was the moderator for the sessions.
Among many decisions, the Forum agreed to several actions to strengthen MEOR’s ministry in Rome including:
- The MEOR director will present a revised mission/strategy plan to the Forum.
- MEOR will revise its corporate and legal structures to better facilitate business in Italy.
- MEOR will seek ways to better integrate into the overall governance and ministry of the World Methodist Council and solicit more diverse voices in oversight.
The Methodist Ecumenical Office Rome is the presence of the World Methodist Council in Rome for ecumenical dialogue, joint action for peace and justice, prayer and reflection, and hospitality.
