Elders

From the PC(USA) Book of Order, “Ruling elders, together with teaching elders (ministers), exercise leadership, government, spiritual discernment, and discipline and have responsibilities for the life of a congregation as well as the whole church, including ecumenical relationships.” (G-2.0301)

At First Presbyterian Church, there are twelve ruling elders divided into three classes of four each. These ruling elders are responsible for governing the congregation.
