Elders – Deacons

The belief that the people of God are called to be leaders is at the heart of the Presbyterian way. This commitment manifests itself in a style of “representative democracy” that is unique in the worldwide church. 

This representative democracy is embodied in the boards of the church: the Session, and the Board of Deacons. The people who serve on these boards have been identified for their gifts of leadership and a commitment to the life and ministry of this congregation and are elected to three-year terms by the congregation.  

The Session is the governing body of the church. Session members, called Elders (the translation of the Greek word presbyteros), are responsible for the whole life and ministry of Fountain Hills Presbyterian Church.

The Deacon Board is responsible for ministries of care and outreach to the congregation and community. It is made up of thirteen members who work together in teams, taking responsibility for the board’s various ministries.
