Our Church Leadership
To those called to exercise special leadership functions in the church as deacons or elders, God gives suitable gifts for their various duties.
In addition to possessing the
necessary gifts and abilities, those who undertake
particular ministries should be persons of strong faith, dedicated
discipleship, and love of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Their manner
of life should be a demonstration of the Christian gospel in the church
and in the world. They must have the approval of God’s people and the
concurring judgment of a council of the church.
(taken from) the Presbyterian Book of Order
Elders and deacons shall be elected to serve terms of no more than three years on the session or board of deacons, and may be eligible for reelection of no more than six consecutive years. A leader who has served six consecutive years shall be ineligible for election to the same board for at least one year.
Once ordained and while active members of this denomination, elders or deacons not in active service on a session or board of deacons are ordained for life and continue to bear the responsibilities of the ministry to which they have been ordained and play an important role in the life of the church.
