Bethel Presbyterian Church (USA) - session


Calendar


 
Bethel Session

The session is made up of the Pastor (moderator) plus the elders in active service (ruling elders). Bethel has twelve active elders, four of whom are elected annually by the congregation to serve a term of three years. Newly elected elders replace those whose term has expired. Once ordained as an elder, one is always an elder -- either active (ruling elder) or inactive (teaching elder). The session has authority over all organizations within the local church. Bethel's Clerk of Session is nominated and elected by the session annually; currently a teaching elder serves as Clerk of Session but does not vote.

Many of Bethel’s activities and on-going operational aspects are coordinated by teams. Each of these teams is composed of Bethel members, and each team is chaired by one or more session members. The Pastor serves as an ex-officio member of every team. In the session roster that follows, just click on a team name to learn about what that team does.
