Full Question:

What is the legal way to go about changing the name of my church (a nonprofit corporation) to a different name?

Answer:

The name of the corporation is set forth in the articles of incorporation on file with the office of the secretary of state of Georgia. Therefore, in order to change the name, the articles of incorporation must be amended.

Forms for amended the articles can be found at the Georgia secretary of state’s office. The amendment must be approved by the membership of the corporation or its directors (e.g., trustees) depending on what the bylaws say.

USLF VT-SM-110 shows a Vermont example which would be similar to Georgia’s form.
