In the PC(USA)
The role of elder has its roots in the early church, but various church traditions have come to define the role in different ways. The following terms are used in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and some other churches in the Reformed tradition:

  • elders — elected members who are ordained to serve as the governing body (session) of a particular congregation
  • presbyters — both elders and ministers together
  • presbytery — a group of congregations in one geographic region
  • ruling elders — members of a church session
  • teaching elders — ministers

The following are the ruling elders in our church, also know as Session.
The moderator of Session is Rev. Bruce Mulder.
