We, the congregation of Lifetree Church of Jersey Shore, PA, petition the Board of Elders to promptly hold a Special Business Meeting to discuss their objections to Pastor Dean Olson's leadership, and to hold a binding vote on whether to retain or remove him in his position as Senior Pastor.
Under Article VII ("Business Meetings") of the Lifetree Church Bylaws, it states:
"A special business meeting must be convened upon presentation of a written petition, signed by at least forty (40) percent of all voting members as outlined in Article VIII."
Please only sign the petition if you meet the voting eligibility guidelines below:
Voting Requirements and Definitions (Lifetree Church Bylaws - ARTICLE VIII)
All the members of the Congregation shall have the right to vote in any Annual or Special Business Meeting, subject to the following conditions:
a. They must be seventeen (17) years of age or older.
b. They must have worshiped regularly with the Congregation for a period of at least six (6) months immediately preceding any meeting in which they exercise voting rights, and they must have completed the first class of the Lifetree Church assimilation process.
c. They must have lived, during that period of six (6) months, in harmony with the doctrines and practices of the Church of God, and shall openly profess and possess a personal experience of Salvation.
