ii) commends the Board for providing a forum of consultation for theological education; and

iii) requests the Standing Committee to prepare legislation to amend the Canon No. 8 of 1969-1981, the
Commissions Canon, in order to make the Board of Ministry and Training a permanent commission of this Church.
