2002-2003 budget tops $100 million

For the first time in its 13-year history, the ELCA adopted a 12-month budget that topped $100 million. Assembly voting members approved a 2002 proposal for $86.6 million and a World Hunger proposal of $16.5 million. They also approved a 2003 budget for $88.3 million and a World Hunger budget of $17 million.

Voting members referred for consideration by the Church Council's budget and finance committee an amendment requesting a hike in the Division for Outreach budget for urban ministry. The increase would have been taken from the Division for Global Mission.
