The General Council is the body tasked with the fiduciary custody of The United Covenant Union, akin to a board of directors. Our General Council is made up by General Members, people who are members of partner congregations who work diligently to raise money, establish partnerships, and recruit new clergy members and partner congregations for The United Covenant Union.
