As a “presbyterian” church, Faith Presbyterian Church is governed by the elders. The church session consists of the elected elders along with the pastor. The pastor or “teaching elder” has the primary responsibility for the teaching and preaching ministry of the church. The “ruling elders” are responsible for governing the church. The session is responsible for the spiritual oversight of the members of the local church. The church deacons assist the session by ministering to the physical needs of the congregation.
