Legally we are organized as an unincorporated society which is registered with Canada Revenue Agency as a Charity. Our charity registration number is 866903479 RR0001.

The Church’s Constitution

Currently, we are in the process of converting ourselves into a society registered under the BC Society Act. This will not have any visible effect on the day to day operation of the church but will equip us much better to be the Church as we walk into the future.

The church is led by two join lead pastors and a team of elders (who also serve as directors). The current Pastors, Elders and Directors and elders are listed below.

Fiscal Administration
 
Our financial year runs to 31 December each year. We hold an annual general meeting (AGM) once a year* to report on the prior year activities including presenting our full financial statements and budget for the upcoming year. The AGM may be attended by anyone who considers KVCF their home church and attendance is very much encouraged. Copies of our financial statements are available at anytime on request from the church office.
 
* Typically held in March.
 
Beginning Sept 2017 we will began publishing a monthly Financial Summary Report summary; this report will be published to the web and the Vineyard bulletin each month, and further distributed to members receiving Vineline newsletters throughout the month.
