NAPC Leadership—Officers

The New Testament regularly speaks of church leaders, commonly called elders, overseers, or shepherds. In addition, deacons were appointed in the early church to meet various needs in the local church. Our form of government stresses strong, active, representational leadership, based on Biblical precedents. Deacons and Elders (officers) are nominated by church members and serve three year terms. 

The Constitution of the Presbyterian Church (USA) consists of the Book of Confessions (historical statements of what we as a church believe) and the Book of Order (form of government, directory for worship, and rules of discipline).

Elders

Elected and ordained members of the congregation are chosen to teach the truth and lead the long-term vision and direction of the church. Together with the ordained pastors, Elders form the church’s governing body, which is called the Session. Elders offer spiritual guidance and work closely with the staff and pastors to set goals and guide the church into the future. They assist during worship services in prayer, baptisms and communion, the sacraments of the church. Elders are stationed at the doors of the church after each worship service to greet, answer questions, and provide prayer and support. The qualifications for an Elder (sometimes translated bishop or overseer) are found in I Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9.

Deacons

Elected and ordained members of the congregation chosen to lead and manage the day-to-day needs of the church and surrounding community. Deacons form a separate board within the church under the authority of the Session. They are responsible for caring for those in need, showing acts of mercy, and collecting and managing monies coming into the church. They are present on Sundays, stationed at entrances to provide welcome and assistance. The office of Deacon was originally established in Acts 6:1-6 and the qualifications for a Deacon are found in I Timothy 3:8-13.
