At Christ Church, the Lord has provided leadership through men elected by the congregation. These men are officers - elders and deacons.
The Elders (the Session)
The Session of Christ Church is made up of the elders of our church. Elders are ordained and are of two sorts: Teaching Elders (or pastors) and Ruling Elders. The Session is responsible for the governing of the church, worship and the administration of the sacraments, and shepherding and discipline in the church. Elders are described in our Form of Government: “As he has the oversight of the flock of Christ, he is termed bishop or pastor. As it is his duty to be grave and prudent, an example to the flock, and to govern well in the house and Kingdom of Christ, he is termed presbyter or elder. As he expounds the Word, and by sound doctrine both exhorts and convinces the gainsayer, he is termed teacher.”
