Servant Leaders

Elders


First Presbyterian Church is led by a Session of elders. The word Presbyterian comes from the Greek word for Elder – therefore we are Elder led. We currently have 9 ruling elders and 1 teaching elder (better known as the pastor). Each elder is nominated, elected, ordained and prayed over by the congregation. Each elder is elected for a 3 year term. We stagger the classes each year to ensure continuity within the Session. Our current elders are:
  • Class of 2016: Keven Caskey, Sara Cavin
  • Class of 2017: Carolyn Anderson, David Anderson, Patty Sundstrom
  • Class of 2018: Scott Light & Wendy Bartanen

Deacons

Deacons provide a ministry of mercy, care, and support for the congregation and beyond. They serve the community by providing financial assistance, food assistance, and friendship. Deacons are also nominated, elected, ordained and prayed over by the congregation. Each deacon is elected for a 3 year term. Our current deacons are:
  • Class of 2016: Pat Lanning, Carleen Randich, Don Ross
  • Class of 2017: Myles Robinson
  • Class of 2018: Nancy Neisinger
  • Class of 2019: Pat Lanning
