Does anyone know anything about the Development Commission?

Apparently it exist in the late eighties to early nineties. It was meant to 'develop' some volunteer congregations to get them to grow, and apparently there was some talk of developing new churches in towns without a Unitarian presence, but that never happened. But clearly it had some pretty serious funding.

The language of 'development' is interesting. I want to smack the label 'evangelism' on this kind of thing.

What can be learnt from the successes and failures of this venture?
