In the Presbyterian model of governance, the Session is the governing body of the congregation. It is composed of the pastor(s), associate pastor(s), and 12 elders in active service. Elders are nominated by the Nominating Committee and elected by the congregation at the Annual Meeting. They serve three year terms. Elders serve the church through leadership in meetings of the Session and through committees. They are called to be a community of spiritual leaders in and for the church.
There are currently nine committees of Session that help fulfill the mission and responsibilities of this church. Each committee is chaired by an active elder and is comprised of members and friends. Committee members serve three year terms. The chair invites congregants to serve on committees and five voting members are approved by Session. Additional members of committees would be non-voting. It is recommended that committee participation reflect the diversity of the congregation.
