Each associational church is allowed a minimum of five voting messengers, with an additional messenger for each 50 resident members above 100 to a maximum of ten messengers for a church. (For example a church of 200 resident members would have up to 7 voting messengers.) Since the association has no way of knowing the membership of each associational church, churches are assumed to register the correct number of messengers and no check will be done unless a question is asked during the meeting concerning a church’s messengers. Messengers are selected by the church in a manner determined by each church. A quorum for the annual meeting will be those voting messengers present.
