Elders

North Decatur Presbyterian Church is governed by “presbyters” or elders, lay people elected by the congregation and ordained to serve on our governing board.

This board is made up of 18 elders serving three-year terms, and two youth elders, each serving a one-year term. Through our councils and committees, elders provide leadership in all areas of our community and spiritual life together.
