The 2019 CCVT AGM was held at Kardinia Church, on Friday May 17, 2019. Thank you to everyone who contributed to discussion, and the common life of our movement together.
Board Election Results
Thank you to those who voted in the CCVT Board Election. As per our constitution, the four positions available needed to be filled by candidates securing two thirds of the vote. The four successful candidates meeting this requirement and also securing the highest number of votes were: Brandon Howard, Liz Hunter, Milton Oliver, and David Oon. Congratulations to them all, and we ask you to please be in prayer for the work of the Board throughout the upcoming year of service.
We appreciate that there were many who expressed strongly-held views in relation to the AGM motion urging that the movement’s marriage rites be repealed. Although this motion did not pass, many appreciated the spirit in which the discussion was held, but some will perhaps wish to converse further. Rob is keen to meet with small groups of ministers across our states, as needed, to discuss aspects of this matter or any other concerns; we look forward to hearing from churches in the coming months. Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org in regards to this.
Delegates present at the AGM were asked to vote either in favour or against, or to abstain from voting on, Motion 2. These votes were counted individually and then added to the Proxy votes already received. The threshold required for a standard motion to pass is a simple majority, which means that for Motion 2 to pass it required a minimum of 97 votes in favour out of the 194 total votes recorded, excluding abstentions. As it received 45 votes in favour, the motion did not pass.
The following churches and agencies were accepted for affiliation with CCVT Inc: All Nations Christian Fellowship; Basic Church; Glory International; Masih Church; Robinvale Church of Christ; Olive Branch Church; Truth and Liberation Concern; Together Church; Café Care; and Cornerstone. We also formally noted the disaffiliation of Lifespring Church of Christ due to their conclusion in 2018.

Minutes of the meeting will be formally adopted at the 2020 CCVT AGM.
