I am curious about the manual and the manual faq.
1. Under what authority do so many Nazarene churches have a "Chairperson" of the board in light of the following information published by the Church of the Nazarene?:
"6. May a person, other than the pastor, be named as chairperson of the local church board? (paragraphs 128, 414.15)
No. The church board may designate an individual as a “presider” of the board meetings to conduct the business, but the Manual states that the pastor is the “chairperson of the local church board.” "
