How does a church join The AALC?
A church that is interested in joining The AALC first severs its relationship with its former church body and then votes to join The AALC according to the protocol of their own constitution. They subsequently fill out an application form and submit it along with their church constitution for approval to the Association Council. Upon approval they are welcomed into The AALC at the next National Convention. All pastors joining The AALC undergo a twelve month period of probation before becoming permanent members of the Clergy Roster.
