Model Constitution

congregationconstitutionThe Model Constitution for Congregations is consistent with the requirements of the constitutional governing documents of the ELCA’s churchwide organization and synods:

Guide for Use of the Model Constitution for Congregations is a helpful reference for congregations reviewing their constitutions. Congregations are encouraged to work with their synod's Constitution Committee from the outset of their work; this may ensure a greater likelihood that the synod will approve the proposed changes (*C17.03.).

To have the synod secretary review your congregation's constitution or bylaws, please send them to synodsecretary@mnys.org
