                                   Constitution

Article I. Name

The name of the Association shall be Campus Christian Fellowship. It shall further be
referred to as “CCF.”

Article II. Purpose

       A. CCF was formed by Christians who agree in their belief that man’s only
          access to God is through Jesus Christ and faith in His deity, His death as full
          payment for man’s sins, and His resurrection. While this is the foundation for
          the Bible study, those holding other beliefs are welcome to attend.
       B. CCF is a student-run non-denominational club, distinct from Campus
          Ministry, that exists to provide regular opportunities to study and discuss the
          Bible, worship, and pray, all in a group setting, which also provides
          opportunities for fellowship, encouragement and spiritual among members.
       C. CCF seeks to be a resource to the student body by offering opportunities to
          discuss spiritual matters, have fun, and provide such resources as outside
          speakers, videos, books, articles, and off-campus activities, all for their
          benefit and consideration.

Article III. Membership

       A. All members of the Stonehill College community are welcome to attend our
          meetings and Bible studies.
       B. One becomes an official member of CCF by attending three consecutive
          meetings.
       C. The obligation of membership is that each member must attend 75% of
          CCF’s meetings.
       D. Being a Christian club, members will not be removed unless we feel that they
          are being detrimental to the mission of CCF. A majority vote will officially
          remove them from CCF.
       E. Special powers of membership include voting privileges.

Article IV. Officers

       A. The positions available are President, Vice President, Secretary, and
          Treasurer.

          nomination is seconded and, once all nominations are voiced, voted on by

          members present successfully removes an
