Elders & Deacons

Elders & Deacons

In Chapel Hill’s denomination, the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC), there are typically three offices in the church: Ministers of the Word (Teaching Elders, Pastors), Ruling Elders, and Deacons.

Elders share authority with the Pastors, representing the mind of Christ as they understand it in the various courts of the church, watch over the spiritual welfare of the people, and may be appointed to participate in Presbytery or General Assembly because the EPC is a connectional church.

The office of Deacons, under the authority of the Session, is one of compassion, concern for needs, serving others, and is marked by sympathy and service. Duties include care, maintenance, and preparation of the church and its facilities.
