Session and Board of Directors
In the Presbyterian church generally, and especially at Grace, the congregation members take an active role in the leadership of church ministry and business. We are grateful for all who serve!
The Session is a representative, elected body tasked with the spiritual leadership and nurture of the church. They serve three-year terms.
In the Presbyterian church, those serving on this council are called "Ruling elders" and are ordained, taking the same vows of leadership that pastors take. This reflects our presbyterian belief that all Christians, whether they've been to seminary or not, are called to be ministers of the good news of God's love!
