Henceforth ministry personnel were managed by a number of areas within DMPE, including high level departments and committees such as the Personnel Services, Personnel Advocacy and Support, and the Pastoral Relations Committee.

The 27th General Council’s passed a resolution that the Division of Mission in Canada and the Division of Ministry Personnel and Education should provide decisive direction in the area of training for leadership in Native settlements.

Work of the Education for Justice unit originated in the Education for Engagement unit of the Division of World Outreach. Work was transferred to the Justice, Global and Ecumenical Relations unit when it was created in 2002.

This unit worked in close co-operation with Conferences to support groups and individuals in congregations, presbyteries, and Conferences by providing information and justice education resources that enable involvement in and connection between global and local justice issues. Principal vehicles were Mandate magazine and the mission theme. It also enabled people-to-people links through programs like Face to Face and supported mission interpretation by overseas personnel in Conferences and exposures trips by United Church groups to partners overseas.

The Justice portfolio was a part of Refugees, Immigration and Justice from 2002-2005. During 2005, JGER reorganized the educational work within the unit to better coordinate and integrate education about Canadian and global social justice issues, as well as to provide further support for United church members wanting to directly engage with global partners. Two new portfolios, Education for Justice and People in Mission, were created, and Education for Engagement ended. This reorganization provided opportunity for increased educational initiatives like Water in Focus.
