Our Leadership

Our Leadership



The Presbyterian Church draws its name from the Greek word for Elder (presbuteros).  Presbyterian congregations are governed by Sessions, made up of elected Elders and the Pastors of the church.  Our Elders prayerfully exercise leadership and government for the life of our church, providing for our worship, learning, fellowship and service.


Deacons are officers elected to a ministry of care and compassion. They go beyond Christ’s call to love by providing an organized way of carrying the love of Jesus into the church and the community, to those who most need it.


Trustees are servant-leaders entrusted with the management of certain permanent or designated ministry funds.
