Article IV   PARTNERS in OUR MISSION

We are an organization of People of Faith who are committed to charting a course together with respect for our theological differences.  We join together to carry out our shared vision to pray for and serve the needs of communities within Arizona in a manner consistent with the values that we hold in common.

Denominations:  Any Denomination, Communion, Association, Conference, Convention, World Religion and/or Fellowship which is in good standing with its national and/or international body and has at least one active congregation in the State of Arizona and is able to affirm the mission of the Organization may become a Partner.  Each Denominational Partner has an appointed representative on the Board of Directors. If that appointed representative is unable to attend a meeting, the Denomination may choose an alternate to attend in their absence.  If the appointed representative is unable to continue to serve on the Board, the Denomination will submit a replacement.
