At RPPC, the Board of Deacons is one of two elected leadership boards. The office of Deacons is traced back to the early church in the book of Acts in the Bible. A deacon is one who serves another. The ministry of our board of Deacons is one of hospitality and caring.

The Session or Council of Elders is the other elected leadership board. It is the governing board of the church, making decisions related to vision, staffing, budgeting, worship planning, building usage, maintenance and improvements and so much more. One of the unique features of Presbyterianism is that we always make decisions in groups. The pastor, staff and all members of the church are under the leadership and guidance of the Council of Elders. In fact the Greek word, presbytero, from which we get our name, simply means elder and refers to the way in which we govern ourselves.
