9th December 2016

Thursday, 8 December, proved to be a full and eventful day as the BUC executive committee met for their last session for 2016. With a full agenda, it was also customary at the year-end meeting for all BUC departmental directors to attend as invitees. Pastor Richard Jackson, NEC President opened the meeting with devotion which ended with all attendees in a meaningful time of prayer.

The committee heard and approved reports of various financial matters including financial statements for the last quarter, salary recommendations, proposed budgets for 2017 and audit reports. Further reports were given from the institutions including Stanborough School, Newbold

College and the Stanborough Press. The annual general meeting for the Seventh-day Adventist Association and Trust committees outlined their objectives with various recommendations.

The committee also approved for Adventist TV to continue on the Sky platform through Revelation TV channel 581 and Freeserve 250. BUC Media will be taking on full responsibility for production and content of new programmes for 2017. With new air times and scheduling changes, Adventist TV will now be broadcast on Sabbath and over the weekend which will provide a greater witness within the British Isles and beyond.
