4. Budget Outline

Under the severe financial situation, every member church and organization are forced to reduce the contribution to NCCJ. We reviewed the contents of the finance in the 39th General Assembly Period in light of the current situation.

5. Report of the Pre-Meetings

NCCJ will hold a Mission Conference in 2018. Before that, we had four pre-meetings in 2017. The preparation committee gave a report sharing blessings of the activities.

NCCJ has been under the severe situation in personnel and finance. On the other hand, it is a big hope we have new associate member organizations. When we see the current situation of the world and Japan, the importance of NCCJ’s role is increasing. With your support and prayer, we will continue going on our new General Assembly period.
