All local NYI delegates to the District NYI Convention must be members of the Church of the Nazarene that they represent.
The number of local NYI delegates for each church is determined by the membership figures on the most recent local pastor's report prior to the district assembly. District NYI leadership encourages local churches to make suitable arrangements for the expenses of delegates attending the District NYI Convention.
The local NYI delegation to the District NYI Convention for churches with 30 or fewer NYI members consists of:
a. The pastor and youth pastor or any full-time paid pastoral staff who participate in NYI ministry.
b. The newly elected local NYI president;
c. Up to four delegates, with at least half being within the district-established NYI ministry focus.
d. Local churches may add an additional delegate for each successive 30 local NYI members and/or final major part of those 30 members (i.e. 16-29 members ). At least half of any additional delegates must be also within the district-established NYI ministry focus.
