Constitution Approval

To assist congregations in creating or revising their constitutions and bylaws, and to help expedite the review process, the Constitution Committee strongly recommends congregations work through this Constitution & Bylaws Checklist (PDF) and return the completed checklist along with their entire Constitution & Bylaws in electronic form.

To submit your congregation’s new or revised constitution for approval, please send it to Rev. Mark Wiesenborn at Make sure you provide your name and phone number as well as the church name and city in the body of the email.

Please Note: According to Synod Bylaws 2.4 and 2.2, congregations are not to formally adopt new or revised constitutions and bylaws until receiving approval by Synod through Texas District and its review process.
