From the Book of Order -The Constitution of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A)
Congregations should elect persons of wisdom and maturity of faith, having demonstrated skills in leadership and being compassionate in spirit. Ruling elders are so named not because they "lord it over" the congregation (Matt.20:25), but because they are chosen by the congregation to discern and measure its fidelity to the Word of God, and to strengthen and nurture its faith and life. Ruling elders, together with teaching elders, exercise leadership, government, spiritual discernment and discipline and have responsibilities for the life of a congregation as well as the whole church, including ecumenical relationships. When elected by the congregation, the shall serve faithfully as members of the session.
Prince of Peace's session consists of 7 adults (3 classes of 2-3 adults serving 3 year terms) and one youth (one year term )
Current Elders: Pat Baum, Sue Cordell, Deb Donnelly, Kent Higgins, Tom Johnson, Anna Munthe, Jordan Watung and Youth Elder Fabiola Pangkerego
