Constitution and By-Laws

Announcement Date: March 1, 2003

In March 2003, Pastor Williams commissioned Trustee Ruben McNair , Sr., (Church Treasurer) to draft a proposed Constitution and By-Laws for Second New St. Paul Baptist Church.

Over the following months, Trustee McNair drafted a Constitution and in August 2003 presented it to a collective group of representatives from the Deacon Board, Trustee Board, and Finance Committee. This “Working Group” spent several weeks reviewing and making refinements to the draft to ensure that it met the church’s needs and objectives.

Upon completion of their efforts, the resulting proposed Constitution and By-Laws were turned over to the Deacon Board for presentation to the church membership for acceptance and adoption.

The Constitution and By-Laws for Second New St. Paul Baptist Church was adopted by the church membership as a “living document” to be preserved, maintained, revised and/or amended (using an orderly and structured process) as necessary to meet the needs of the Second New St. Paul Baptist Church. The Joint Board will determine when and if revisions and/or amendments will be submitted to the church membership for consideration/acceptance.
