The General Assembly recognising that the maintenance of the ministry and of Gospel ordinances in established charges of the Church is to be regarded as a primordial responsibility for which adequate provision must be made, direct as follows:-

A minimum stipend shall be secured for ministers in accordance with the cost of living, and in order to have an objective criterion for fixing the minimum, and for obviating both long periods of hardship for ministers and sporadic dislocating adjustments of the Equal Dividend, stipends shall be increased annually from an agreed base until they reach the level of 72 per cent. of the average annual wage by 1982 at the latest. The programming of those increases shall be the concern of the Committee on Sustentation in presenting their annual estimates to the Finance, Law and Advisory Committee.
