If there are meaningful checks and balances answer the following and supply documentation.
1. That your church has a democratically elected board that can discipline you, fire you and that they control the budget of the church and set your salary. Please supply a copy of the church constitution and bylaws that provide for this as previously requested.
2. That your church has an independently audited and annually published financial report that is distributed to all members, which reports all salaries, any and all compensation and expenses paid out from church funds. Please supply a copy of that report as previously requested.
