1 Formerly called “elders.”
2 The Country Servant is the overall head of a country.
3 For Metro Manila, this includes the MM Mission Coordinator, the Luzon Mission Coordinator, the Visayas Mission Coordinator and the Mindanao Mission Coordinator. In other countries, it would be their counterparts.
4 Family Ministries, Social Ministries, Pro-life. Also the major sub-groups thereat.
5 Home Office, PFO, etc.
6 Included are the core teams of each of the Family Ministries (KFL, YFL, SFL, HFL, SvFL).
7 In Metro Manila there are 7 districts but only one Seniors Assembly.
8Except in December, if the regularly scheduled Seniors Assembly is in the second half of the month.
9 These persons are not considered “seniors” though they are included in the Seniors Assembly.
10 Those who are no longer serving as seniors not because of their own transgression. Such former seniors may opt not to be a part of the Seniors Assembly.
11 These individuals may opt not to be a part of the Seniors Assembly.
12 The Seniors Assembly is normally a regular prayer assembly. However, its content and format may be adapted to whatever will be helpful at that time for the seniors. For example, there could be an extended teaching, or a video presentation, or a “town hall” type of interactive meeting, etc.
13 It is up to individuals to fellowship and network before and after the assembly itself.
14This is the top leader, not yet a senior, of CFC-FFL in a parish. If we have just one household, then it is the Household Servant. If one unit, it is the Unit Servant.
