About Us

Elders & Deacons


Those called on to provide spiritual leadership for a Presbyterian congregation are called Ruling Elders. The pastors are called Teaching Elders. The word Presbyterian comes from the Greek word presbuteros which means elder. The biblical requirements for Elders are spelled out in the New Testament letters of 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1.

In addition to the Elders, the church is also served by Deacons who engage in ministries of mercy and compassion both within the congregation and in the community. The biblical requirements for Deacons are found in 1 Timothy 3.
