The leadership of SRPC consists of elders and deacons who form the Session and the Diaconate.

Our Pastor: Our pastor is a teaching elder. A teaching elder is specially gifted, called, and trained by God to preach. He is moderator of the Session and, in addition to those functions he shares with all other elders, he is to feed the flock by reading, expounding and preaching the Word of God and to administer the Sacraments.

The Session: The elders (the pastor and the ruling elders) make up this body and jointly have the government and spiritual oversight of the Church, including teaching.

The Diaconate: This is our board of deacons. Their office is not one of rule, but rather of service both to the physical and spiritual needs of the people.
