EVERYONE A FAITHFUL DISCIPLE OF CHRIST

Trustees

The highest policy and decision-making body in the OFNC is its National Executive Council (NEC), which is made up of National Officers and Area Secretaries. These are also the Trustees of the fellowship. To help things run smoothly, the NEC is chaired by the National Chairman who is the Chief Executive Officer.

Area Secretaries are then the executive and spiritual leaders of their respective branches. The image below describes the different levels of decision-making in the OFNC. The General Assembly meets once each year at the Annual National Conference, which incorporates the AGM; the NEC meets quarterly. Each Branch has a Branch Executive Committee that meets according to local arrangements.
