Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?’
And I said, ‘Here am I; send me!’” Isaiah 6:8
The Presbyterian church enjoys a representative form of church government, in which elected leaders join pastors in the running of the church. These leaders are called elders and the group of elders that govern a church body is called the Session. At First Presbyterian Church of Farmington, elders serve a three year term after they are elected. Learn more about Presbyterian church government from the PC(USA) website.
