Our Leadership


Taking on the responsibility for all church programs and property, the Session is the chief governing body of the church. It is comprised of Elders (spiritual leaders), each elected for a three-year term. Some have trustee responsibilities (Administration and Property) and others have a variety of responsibilities providing for the life and ministry of the church in the areas of Worship and Music, Christian Education and Discipleship, and Mission Outreach, among others.
