What is a Ruling Elder?

A ruling elder is one of the three ordered ministers of the church (with the Teaching Elders and Deacons). This office was given to us by Jesus Christ and witnessed to in various New Testament Scriptures (I Timothy 3:1-7;I Peter 5:1)   to assist in the operations of a church and its ministry. Ruling Elders are given the serious tasks of providing for worship, governing the church's property and finances, and overseeing the overall operation of an individual congregation and assisting in the government of the entire church through the Presbytery, Synod, and General Assembly.
