Synod 2012 did not change the process of shared supervision of an ordained minister employed by the Christian Reformed Church’s denominational administration.
Classis Grandville (Mich.), a regional group of churches, requested that synod address the process in which denominational leaders are supervised by both their home congregations and other institutions involved. The classis wanted a more honest, effective, and God-honoring process.
Since Classis Grandville did not suggest any specific changes, synod did not accept the request. However, synod encouraged the church to conscientiously follow the current Church Order guidelines.
