Every association of persons composed of representatives from religious societies or congregations of Christians may, at any regular meeting of the association, by a majority vote, by ballot or otherwise, according to the constitution or by-laws of the association, elect any number of members of such association, not exceeding seven, to be its trustees, for the purpose of incorporating such association as hereinafter provided.

Such trustees shall proceed in the manner provided in section 16:1-2 of this title, transmitting the certificate therein provided for to the clerk of the county in which the association shall have held the meeting at which the trustees shall have been elected, whereupon they and their successors shall be a corporation by the name of incorporation so taken, certified and recorded, with all the powers enumerated in section 16:1-4 of this title, so far as the same may be consistent with and appropriate to the purposes for which such corporation is formed.

The proceedings, orders, acts and resolutions of a majority of all the trustees, but not of a less number, shall be valid and effectual.

No demand for the extradition of a person charged with crime in another state shall be recognized by the governor unless in writing alleging, except in cases arising under section 16-19-107, that the accused was present in the demanding state at the time of the commission of the alleged crime, and that thereafter he fled from the state, and accompanied by a copy of an indictment found or by information supported by affidavit in the state having jurisdiction of the crime, or by a copy of an affidavit made before a magistrate there, together with a copy of any warrant which was issued thereupon, or by a copy of a judgment of conviction or of a sentence imposed in execution thereof, together with a statement by the executive authority of the demanding state that the person claimed has escaped from confinement or has broken the terms of his bail, probation, or parole. The indictment, information, or affidavit made before the magistrate must substantially charge the person demanded with having committed a crime under the law of that state;  and the copy of the indictment, information, affidavit, or judgment of conviction or sentence must be authenticated by the executive authority making the demand.
