All Saints' Church, Jericho is registered under the Companies and Allied Matters Act. All the material properties of the Church are held in trust by the trustees of the Church. Initially there were three trustees but in order to reduce the problems involved if frequent changes of the names of trustees with the Corporate Affairs Commission, Abuja, it was decided in 2007 that the number should be increased to five so that at any given time, there are sufficient trustees to function. The policy-making functions of the Church under trusteeship devolve on the Church Council, subject to the supervision of the General Meeting of the entire membership of the Church. Spiritual leadership of the congregation is vested in the clergy (The Minister. the Assistant Minister, Readers and Helpers) who conduct services and attend to the spiritual needs of individuals and groups.
