2016 Wesleyan Discipline: 820–823
820. Each established church may have a nominating committee consisting of the pastor as chair and two members who meet the leadership qualifications (2016 Wesleyan Discipline:260-268; 2016 Wesleyan Discipline:558) elected by the local board of administration from its membership (2016 Wesleyan Discipline:655:3; 2016 Wesleyan Discipline:782:22). The local church conference may, at its option, elect up to four additional members who meet the leadership qualifications who are not members of the local board of administration. If the local church conference does not exercise its option to elect at least one additional member who meets the leadership qualifications, then the local board of administration shall elect one additional member with the leadership qualifications who may or may not be a member of the local board of administration. 823. When a nominating committee has been established, it shall present to the local church conference, at its annual session, nominations for each of the following officers: lay leader (if any), local church secretary, local church treasurer (if any), the Sunday school superintendent (if any), and one or more trustees (2016 Wesleyan Discipline:850). One or more names shall be presented for each office (cf. 2016 Wesleyan Discipline:755). The nominating committee shall present, at the properly announced session of the local church conference (cf. 2016 Wesleyan Discipline:965; 2016 Wesleyan Discipline:1103), nominations for as many delegates to the district conference as the district board of administration shall determine (2016 Wesleyan Discipline:1100). The nominating committee may be used for other nominations as ordered by the local church conference, or as ordered by the local board of administration for positions elected by the board (cf. 2016 Wesleyan Discipline:825).
