Church Officers

Each year our congregation nominates and elects ruling elders and deacons, who lead us in bringing the mission of Second Church to life. We invite you to nominate a fellow church member by filling out this form for the Nominating Committee to consider. See links below for lists of those who are already serving.

There are three types of church officers:

  • Ruling Elders, who are entrusted with the spiritual government of the church, are elected by the congregation, ordained for life, and serve on the Session for a three year term.
     
  • Teaching Elders, who are the ministers of Word and Sacrament, are ordained by the Presbytery, and called by the congregation to serve in a variety of ministries. 
     
  • Deacons who are entrusted with the ministry of compassion and service. Deacons are elected by the congregation, ordained for life, and serve a three year term on the Board of Deacons.
