Synod Constitution

Our synod constitution exists to ensure that our common life and work follow the principles of good governance. The constitution lays out the history, purpose, and governance of this synod, including rules about synod assembly, amendments, bylaws, and continuing resolutions, and the purpose and rules of the governing bodies of this synod.

 

The most recent adoption of the revised constitution occurred in May 2017. Download the current constitution (PDF).
