Session

What is the "session"?

The session is the governing body of the local church. It is composed of godly men who have been called by God to lead His church together; each member of the session is selected by the congregation. The session includes both teaching elders (pastors) and ruling elders. Specifically, they teach, equip, disciple, nurture, discipline and shepherd the congregation.
