Elders and Deacons

A distinctive mark of the Presbyterian Church is that each congregation is governed by ‘presbyters’ or ‘elders.’ The elders have a pastoral responsibility for the care of individuals and responsibility to administer the programs of the church. There are two types: Teaching Elders, who are ordained pastors, and Ruling Elders, who are elected by the local congregation and are also ordained. The Ruling Elders serve three year terms. The Teaching and Ruling Elders together comprise the Session, the governing body of the church. They are assisted by elected and ordained Deacons who lead and participate in ministries of caring and service. (Acts 14-15; 1 Timothy 5; Titus 1; James 5).
