UPC Elders

Session Elders

Elders are active members of the church who serve in government, leadership, and ministry. They are persons of faith, dedication, and good judgment, nominated and elected by the congregation. Elders serve on the church's governing body (called Session), take part in planning committees, assist in worship, serve communion, and help the pastors nurture, teach, and encourage the congregation.

Although elders are elected for a term of three years, once ordained, they are ordained for life, even if they transfer to another PC(USA) church. After their terms of office are finished, elders continue to play an important role in the life of the church by participating in various ministries.
