Faith Presbyterian Church Leadership
“The fundamental responsibility of church leaders is to shepherd God’s flock.” -Timothy Witmer
Presbyterian churches elect congregational leaders called "elders" (from the Greek word presbyteros). The elders together with the minister make up the "session," which is responsible for the spiritual leadership of the church.
The Bible gives a model for leadership that is distinct from the world. The Bible calls leaders "shepherds." The Bible even calls God a shepherd because of his loving and ceaseless concern for his people. Jesus in John 10 calls himself the "Good Shepherd" because he laid down his life for the sheep and is able to call them by name. Guided and governed by the Good Shepherd, the session of Faith Presbyterian Church seeks to lead the flock of Christ into the rich, green pastures of gospel grace where they can be fed, sustained, protected and nourished in their journey through the wilderness of this world.
Our ruling elders are: Robert Mehne, John Domin, Joe Widzbell, Rick Kozak, and Dave Beckish.
