can newly elected local church officers vote?greenspun.com : LUSENET : A.M.E. Today Discussion : One Thread
1.) can a newly elect steward of the local church in an official steward board meeting prior to confirmation by the quarterly conference?
2.) do junior stewards have any voting rigts in a steward board meeting?

This is not an answer, just a comment: Stewards are not elected, they are appointed by the pastor.

Yes, stewards can function fully in their office prior to confirmation. Confirmation just links them to the arena beyond the local church...ie. district conference. But upon appointment by the pastor, a steward is a steward and can vote in official board.
