Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You are claiming they improperly terminated you? Did you have a contract? Did they violate the contract? What is your specific suit for?

The congregation of Pentecostal Church is the owner of the all properties, we have the Titles of the temple, Vehicle, etc. The Executives of the South Eastern Spanish District Council Assemblies of God, Inc., of Orlando, they made an illegally appropriation of our properties. They changed the Board of the Church from their offices in Orlando, via Internet, within make a meeting with the members of the congregation. They violated our rights and our sovereignty. We were affiliated with them only, within contract. I have the case in the Court, and I need orientation how can I represent my self (pro se) in the Court, what steps I have do to represent my self.

Thank you for your reply.
You are seeking to sue on behalf of the actual congregation and not on your own behalf? This is IMPORTANT, because it matters as to whether or not you can be pro se?
