Leadership & Staff

Christ Presbyterian Church (CPC) is blessed to have elders, deacons, and volunteer staff and coordinators. 


The word “Presbyterian” comes from the Greek word “presbuteros,” which means “elder.” Presbyterian churches are governed by the elders of the congregation, who have been elected by the members and ordained. There are two types of elders: teaching elders (pastors) and ruling elders. Together, they make up the Session of our church. The Session shepherds and leads CPC, provides spiritual care and oversight to the congregation, and is charged with maintaining the spiritual government of our church.

Ruling Elders:

Deacons are also elected by the members of CPC and ordained. The office of deacon is one of sympathy and service, after the example of the Lord Jesus; it expresses also the communion of saints, especially in their helping one another in time of need. The Deacons are organized as a board called the Diaconate.
