Our Organization

The Kirk Session: In First Presbyterian Church, Regina, our Session is composed of 20 elected elders and our Moderator. Our church has adopted Term Eldership whereby Elders are elected by the congregation, formally ordained into Eldership and then serve a term of 6 years, renewable once consecutively, then requiring a break of not less than one year. In addition to the decision making role, our Elders also provide a pastoral role. Each Elder (except the Clerk of Session) has a “district” comprised of people in the congregation with whom the Elder keeps in close contact about the life and activities of our church. In addition, Elders are provide spiritual support where they are able and as requested.

Session Roles: There are various roles that Elders play on the Session, including Clerk of Session, Representative Elder and Roll Clerk.

The Board of Managers: The Board of Managers in First Presbyterian Church Regina, is chaired by a Session Elder. Two additional Elders are required by our church to sit on the Board. The Board looks after all matters relating to the finances and property of the congregation. Employees of the church report to the Board.
