Article V: Corporate Membership

Section 1. Corporate Members.

The Corporation shall have no members. Any action which would otherwise require approval by a majority of all members shall require the unanimous approval of the Board of Elders, hereinafter also referred to as “the Elders.” All rights which would otherwise vest in the members shall vest in the Elders.

Section 2. Concerning Church Membership.

Nothing contained in Section 1 of this Article shall be construed to limit the right of Grace Church to refer to persons associated with the Church as “Members” even though such persons are not corporate members, and no such reference in or outside of this Constitution shall constitute anyone being a member under Illinois law (see Article VII, Section 5).
