Session of Elders

Session of Elders

Every Presbyterian church has a specific plan for making decisions.

Decision-makers within the Presbyterian Church at Bound Brook include the church staff, the Session of Elders, the Board of Deacons, and a variety of commissions.  The Session of Elders includes our pastor and the 18 elders currently in active service.

Elders are selected by the Church Nominating Committee and elected by the congregation. Elders serve as the representatives for all the people of the church and meet monthly. They take leadership roles on various commissions or committees and oversee all aspects of the life of the church—from its finances and its facilities to its mission outreach and worship. All members of the Session are entitled to vote on issues presented to them. (For a short report on the decisions made at the monthly meeting of Session, see each issue of The Presbyterian.)
