REQUIRED STEPS

  1. The applying church must have at least 20 adult members

  7. Send the Superintendent and the Regional Presbyter a copy of the proposed Bylaws for preliminary approval - They will make sure that the necessary items are covered in the Bylaws
  8. The Superintendent may want to have personal interview with the church Pastor after reviewing proposed Bylaws
  9. After the Superintendent is satisfied that the document meets all requirements, and that the church is ready for GCA status, he will present the GCA request and the proposed Bylaws to the Presbytery for approval
  10. The Superintendent will schedule a date and time to set the church in order
