CHAPTER 18

Property

531 Introduction

According to the UB Constitution, all church property titled by the local church is considered as belonging to the local church. All real property owned by the national conference is considered to be held in trust for the Church of the United Brethren in Christ, USA.

532 Property Reverting to the US National Conference

When property reverts to the US National Conference, the US National Conference may do any of the following:

1. Donate or sell it back to the congregation, if still in existence, according to a mutual agreement of understanding.

2. Restart the congregation or start a new congregation in the same community.

3. Sell the property to an outside interest and use the funds for ministries within the US National Conference.

4. If the property is owned by the US National Conference, the US National Conference can transfer the property to the local church and request a lien representing the funds the US National Conference has invested in the property.
