The GLC Executive Board is in place to assure that the many ministries of the Great Lakes Conference are done with integrity and in Christian character. The board is pleased to commit to the oversight of the Biblical Mandate of Acts 20:28 “Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be Shepherds of the Church of God.” The Board is responsible to administrate the operations and functions of the Conference, and is accountable to and reports to the GLC as it meets in annual or special sessions.
