Synod Assembly 2015
May 29-30
Carthage College

Plans are currently underway for Synod Assembly 2015 which will take place at Carthage College on May 29 – 30, 2015.  Please check back soon for more details.  If you’re planning for voting members to be selected at January meetings the information below should be helpful.

Voting Members

The number of lay voting members your congregation elects depends on the number of baptized members (not voting or confirmed members) in the congregation. Lay voting members from larger congregations should be as evenly divided between female and male as possible.

All congregations are entitled to at least two Voting Members – one male and one female. Additional Voting Members are allocated to larger congregations as follows:

  • Up to 749 baptized members – two Voting Members
  • 750 to 1,249 baptized members – three Voting Members
  • 1,250 to 1,750 baptized members – four Voting Members
  • An additional Voting Member is allocated for each additional 500 baptized members. Voting Members must be divided as equally as possible between men and women.


The deadline for resolutions to be submitted to the synod office is April 16, 2015.


Registration will be open mid to late February.  The deadline to register for the earlybird price will be April 16, 2015.  We are working with Carthage to secure the best possible prices for you.
