Our Ruling Elders


What is an "Elder" and what do they do?


Elders are church members who are nominated by other church members to serve as leaders on a twelve-person committee, or "Session".  This group acts as the main governing body of the church. 


If you are interested in elder leadership or know someone who is, send the elder team an email using the boxes at right. You may also use this to contact any of the elders to ask questions or voice concerns. Your correspondence is kept strictly confidential.  Our Elders would love to hear from you.
