The board of directors is entrusted with a wide range of responsibilities in regard to oversight of The Foursquare Church. Although the board cannot delegate its decision-making responsibility and authority to any one portion of its members or to any other group, the board can and does assign committees to assist in the process of making informed decisions. At this time, the board has empowered 12 committees; each of these will be explained individually. As need dictates, additional committees can be established; committees can also be disbanded when the board of directors no longer needs assistance in the specific areas that the committees served.
