Elders and Deacons


Our Leaders

Presbyterian government is an ingenious system of shared power between pastors and lay people.  We elect leaders to guide our congregation, trusting them to listen for God’s voice and to work as partners with one another.

 

Elders 

The Session is an elected board of 15 Elders who serve three-year terms and are charged with maintaining the program, the spiritual life and the physical plant of this church. Each committee is chaired by an Elder and has several members from the congregation.

Deacons

An elected board of our church, the Deacons show care and concern for members and friends of the church. They serve three-year terms and provide transportation to worship services and care for shut-ins, assist people in crises, maintain contact with college students and support local food drives.
