Leadership Team

What is the distinctive of a Presbyterian church?  The answer is our leadership culture, the clue of which is found in the name itself.  In the New Testament, appointed leaders were called presbeuteroi, or in English, elders.  Each Presbyterian congregation is governed and led by a group of men and women, chosen by and representative of the congregation, called ruling elders.  Together they serve on and comprise the leadership group, called the Session.  The pastor of a Presbyterian church is called a teaching elder, and serves as the moderator of the Session.
