The ministry of any church is the work of the people, as we act together as the hands, feet, and heart of Christ in the world. This is especially true at Northside Presbyterian, where we have chosen to organize ourselves for service to others through our ministries and related committees. These programs allow each member to use our God-given gifts and individual passions to involve ourselves with others in ministries that interest and excite us.

Northside members and friends share a common conviction and passion for a particular avenue of service, supported by our church’s vision - Welcome Home! Come Walk With Us! 

  • The Session of the Northside Presbyterian Church is the governing body of the church.  Members of Session (lay persons - men and women, ordained as "Ruling Elders") are elected by the congregation and normally serve a three-year term, with a third of the Session elected each year. 

The following is a list of church committees. Each committee is headed by a Ruling Elder, who reports to Session.

The Pastor (ordained as a "Minister of Word and Sacrament") is the moderator of the Session and possesses the authority necessary for preserving order and for conducting efficiently the business of the body.  The pastor is a member of the Session with equal rights to the other Elders.

The Presbyterian Church takes its name from the New Testament Greek word for "Elder": presbuteros. It describes the way the church is governed, with oversight resting on elected bodies at the congregational, regional and national levels.
