Session Members

The Presbyterian Church has a rich and exciting history. Like all Christian churches, the Presbyterians trace their roots back to the early church in Jerusalem.

The word "Presbyterian" comes from a biblical word meaning "elder." The Presbyterian Church is a representative democracy governed by elders elected from and by the congregation. These elders are considered to be the wisest members of the church.

Teaching elders (pastors) and ruling leaders (lay men and women) serve together on a church board, the "Session." It is the Session that has the authority in the local congregation.

Elders are elected from the congregation for three-year terms. They are responsible for the physical and spiritual oversight of the whole church.
