Presbyterians make decisions and manage finances through a council of Elders (presbyters) known as the Session. Ours is a representative democracy. Elders are elected and ordained by the congregation to work with various ministry teams that carry out the mission of the church. Peace elected its first Session consisting of twelve elders on August 30, 2009.
In addition to pastoring Presbyterian, Lutheran, and Methodist Churches, these servants have authored books, led presbyteries, conferences, and synods, taught at colleges and seminaries, served as physicians, psychologists, chaplains, and camp directors, and been advocates for the poor, homeless, and those with psychiatric disabilities. Some of them are still employed elsewhere, but all of them are engaged at Peace – teaching, leading, preaching, caring, and providing good vision.
