Name Change

In our current church constitution the wording regarding our official name reads... "The name of this church shall be ..........."  if an effort was made to change the name but still keep the current name on documents for legal purposes, what type of vote would have to be taken? Would we need to reword that portion of the constitution to list both names or is this not even a option.

I agree with Reelsman. From a parliamentary perspective, to deal with a couple aspects of your question - sure, your constitution can (again, from a parliamentary perspective) list both names, or no name, or whatever you'd like, once you amend it following your amendment procedures, lacking an applicable statute to the contrary or, if incorporated, a contrary statement in your Articles. However, as Reelsman points out, we can't tell you what trouble it will cause to do so.
