The District Advisory Board has spent considerable time thinking and praying about the future shape and organisation of the Nazarene Church in New Zealand.
There has been an increase in the amount of administration work required, specially charities commission, taxes, incorporation, marriage celebrant registration, police vetting, insurance, public liability, tax laws, and property rentals etc. Therefore it is obvious that there is value in dividing up the responsibilities and appointing various people to take care of legal and administrative details.
The DAB proposed that we divide the churches of the NZ District into mission networks along geographical and ethnic lines and so some of the work of the superintendency is spread over four people instead of just one.
And hence the four networks have taken shape.
