Resolutions

Intro to Resolutions

What is a resolution?

A resolution is a proposal for an action or statement of opinion, put in form for debate, amendment, clarification and eventual vote. After they have been reviewed for consideration, they will be formally discussed at Convention.

How do I submit a resolution for convention?

All resolutions to be considered for action by the Convention must be submitted in writing in proper format to the Secretary of the Convention not later than thirty (30) days prior to the date of the Convention. Resolutions should be written clearly and concisely.

Any congregation member can submit a resolution concerning the mission and ministry of our church, however, it requires sponsorship or endorsement of a delegate to Convention (lay or clergy).

Resolutions must be submitted by October 10, 2017. Any resolution submitted after the deadline will be forwarded to the Committee on Miscellaneous Business.
