The Park Presbyterian Church Session
Governance in a Presbyterian congregation rests with Ruling Elders. They are elected by fellow church members to discern God’s will for the church family, and to then put in place ministries and policies to achieve it. Elders typically oversee groups of volunteer members—organized into committees and commissions—who join in implementing these policies and programs.
