Good luck.

I've tried finding stuff from the UPCI Manual online and it's not there . . . or I just may not be looking hard enough. The only way you get that information is to be a licensed minister, or if you know one who has the book.

Various things, but for the most part I have been in a UPC church all my life and never known what the by-laws were. I've reached the point in my life that I am part of the leadership in my church and I would like to know the UPC stated bylaws. I hear from people all the time what they think are the bylaws but I have never seen it in writing.

I have access to an online copy from 2005 that was painstakingly typed up by someone on another forum, that some of us frequent. I am not sure what the copyright implications if I were to post the whole thing in a public place though...

Why not ask your Pastor to see your bylaws? Generic Bylaws may not apply in your church or State.

Define leadership. Leadership can be a board member, or can be a head of a department like outreach.

I will answer some questions, but do fail to see why we would want to paste the entire bylaws here.

As to my knowledge we do not have our own stated bylaws to date. As far as leadership goes, media department head may not fit your discription.

We recently had a minister preach a two day revival. This preacher was not of the UPCI. Also this preacher had a beard. He was black but I don't think that bit of info will play into this discussion. My question is, "Is a preacher that is not with the organization allowed to preach and further more is anything stated in the bylaws to whether or not a minister with a beard should be allowed on the platform."
