Assembly Details

How to Determine a Congregation’s Voting Members

A congregation’s Assembly voting members can be determined by the following formula:

Please note:

  • A congregation’s called Rostered Ministers (pastor and deacon) are not included in the above formula.
  • A congregation with a Synodically Authorized Minister may have an additional lay voting member provided that additional lay voting member is their Synodically Authorized Minister. According to constitutional provisions, Synodically Authorized Ministers are not considered Rostered Ministers.
  • Retired rostered ministers not otherwise serving a congregation may be voting members provided they register and attend the Assembly.
  • Congregations are encouraged to have several alternates available in case their voting members are not able to attend an in-person assembly.
