    What are the reasons to remove a pastor and who has the authority in doing so?

      The ONLY way to remove a COGIC Pastor involuntarily, is through the process found in Article VIII. No one, not even the Presiding Bishop has the authority to summarily remove him without a trial. All pastors and elders should become experts on Article VIII and what their rights are.
