The Session

The Session is the governing body of any Presbyterian USA church. It is composed of the pastor of the church and elected "ruling" elders.

Presbyterianism

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is distinctly a confessional and a connectional church, distinguished by the representation of elders — laymen and laywomen — in its government.

Presbyterians are distinctive in two major ways. They adhere to a pattern of religious thought known as Reformed theology and a form of government that stresses the active, representational leadership of both ministers and church members.
