Ruling Elders: The Ministry of Discernment and Governance

In Old Testament times elders governed the people, so the New Testament church
provided persons with particular gifts to share in discernment of God's Spirit and
governance of God's people. Accordingly, congregations should elect persons of wisdom and maturity of faith who have demonstrated skills in leadership and who are compassionate in spirit. 

Ruling elders, together with teaching elders, exercise leadership, government, spiritual discernment, and responsibility for the life of our congregation as well as the entire church.  When elected by our congregation, they will serve faithfully as members of session.
