Here is the text found in  ARTICLE VIII of the CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST, INC. Constitution.  When the word “shall” is used, it indicates a mandate.  There are no choices, there are no other options.  I have placed the items in bold print that pertain to those who are qualified to be the Ecclesiastical (Board of Bishops) representative and who is qualified to be the Ministerial  (General Council of Pastors and Elders) representative.

Click on the manual cover to view ARTICLE VIII in its entirety.
