In July 2010 the Executive Board passed a motion to separate the Counseling and Literature Ministries. The Literature Committee submitted a proposal on September 2, 2010 for separating the ministry and creating separate entities. On November 5, 2010, the Consulting Board voted unanimously to separate the Literature from the Counseling. The year 2011 has been a year of decision making and planning, especially for the Literature Committee.
The Literature Committee has now formed its own Board and will provide office space and staff for its operations. Necessary legal considerations are in progress and the transition will be in place for the year 2012. The literature ministry will be recognized as LIFE Literature, and the counseling ministry will retain the name LIFE Counseling Ministries
