  • Leadership – Please provide the names and contact information including email for your pastor(s) and Chair of Deacons/Elders, Chair of Council/Board, Treasurer, Clerk/Administrator
  • Why CINOC – We’d like a letter with a motion from your congregation, indicating its desire to seek affiliation with CINOC.
