Rutherfordton Presbyterian Church

The Session and the Deacons

We have two boards that help us organize and focus our gifts and talents.

The Board of Elders (or Session)* is made up of 3 classes of 4 elders each. Each class serves 3 years. The pastor is the moderator of that board. The Session is responsible for developing a vision for the church and for major decisions coming from the recommendations from commissions on which the Elders and Deacons serve, such as worship, education, mission, stewardship, and care of our facility.

The Board of Deacons (or Deacons)** insures that those in need are being served. This board is made up of 3 classes of 4 deacons each. Each class serves 3 years. The deacons elect their moderator. The various Committees on this board each have specific duties, listed in detail below.
