Leadership

Our Leaders

In the Presbyterian Church, more trust is placed in a group of people, who together seek to discern the mind of God to lead them towards faithful action, than in a single individual who has all the answers. Therefore, committees are a mainstay of the church. At the local, congregational level this means two main boards: Session, as the highest decision- making body, and the Deacons, as the care-taking, pastoral group. Both groups are to be a representation of the congregation as a whole.

The elders and deacons are ordained positions in the Presbyterian Church (USA). That means that we believe each of them have been chosen by God and the congregation to be a leader in Christ’s church. The vows they take are the same vows that the pastor takes to become a Minister of Word and Sacrament. Once a person is ordained that ordination is considered a lifelong vocation. The ordained elders and deacons have a responsibility to cultivate their prayer life, to study the Bible, and to seek God in their individual, and congregational life.

Elders

The Session is the Governing Board of the church, and consists of the senior pastor, associate pastors, and elders in active service (the “ruling” elders).
