Any ordained minister uniting with a church or denomination other than the Church of the Nazarene, or engaging in other Christian ministry, will cease membership unless he or she obtains approval of the District Advisory Board of the assembly district in which he or she holds ministerial membership, and obtains the written approval of the Board of General Superintendents. The district assembly shall cause to be entered into its minute record the following statement: “Removed from the membership and ministry of the Church of the Nazarene by uniting with another church, denomination, or ministry.” (107, 112)
