There are three types of church officers:
  • Ruling Elders, who are entrusted with the spiritual government of the church, are elected by the congregation, ordained for life, and serve on the Session for a three year term.
     
  • Teaching Elders, who are the ministers of Word and Sacrament, are ordained by the Presbytery, and called by the congregation to serve in a variety of ministries. 

  • Deacons who are entrusted with the ministry of compassion and service. Deacons are elected by the congregation, ordained for life, and serve a three year term on the Board of Deacons.
