Elders

As there were in Old Testament times elders for the government of the people, so the New Testament Church provided persons with particular gifts to share in governing and ministry.

Elders are chosen by the people. Together with ministers of the Word and Sacrament, they exercise leadership,  government, and discipline and have responsibilities for the life of a particular church as well as the church at large, including ecumenical relationships. They shall serve faithfully as members of the session. When elected commissioners to higher governing bodies, elders participate and vote with the same authority as ministers of the Word and Sacrament, and they are eligible for any office.

Elders should be persons of faith, dedication, and good judgment. Their manner of life should be a demonstration of the Christian gospel, both within the church and in the world. (From the Presbyterian Book of Order). For more information about Elder responsibilities go to: Deacons and Elders Defined (Book of Order) or to the "Book of Order" at http://www.synod.org/pcusa/pdf/book-of-order2011-2013.pdf  , Page 26-30, Section G-2.02, etc.

Call the church office at 760 745-3225 to contact one of the Elders.
