Change of Name. A local Church of the Nazarene may change its name by this process:

  1. The local church board submits the proposed change to the district superintendent who shall obtain the written approval of the District Advisory Board;
  2. A majority ballot vote in an annual or special meeting of the church membership;
  3. The District Advisory Board reports the change to the district assembly, and the district assembly votes approval of the same. (102.4)
