Control of trustees by corporate meetings; salaries of ministers
Religious Corporations (RCO) CHAPTER 51, ARTICLE 10
§ 200. Control of trustees by corporate meetings; salaries of
ministers. A corporate meeting of an incorporated church, whose
trustees are elective as such, may give directions, not inconsistent
with law, as to the manner in which any of the temporal affairs of the
church shall be administered by the trustees thereof; and such
directions shall be followed by the trustees. The trustees of an
incorporated church to which this article is applicable, shall have no
power to settle or remove or fix the salary of the minister, or without
the consent of a corporate meeting, to incur debts beyond what is
necessary for the care of the property of the corporation; or to fix or
charge the time, nature or order of the public or social worship of such
church, except when such trustees are also the spiritual officers of
such church.
