Our Leadership

The PCA is a Presbyterian denomination in that we have a representative form of church government. A local church is governed by a “Session” comprised of elders (i.e., “presbyters”) elected by the members of the congregation. Deacons are called to minister to the needs of the congregation and exercise a ministry of sympathy and service.
