Leadership

SESSION

Comprised of elders, installed pastors and associate pastors, the Session is the governing council of the church. Through prayerful discernment, Session guides our congregation to become a community of faith, hope, love and witness.

Leadership roster here.  Leadership resources here.

ELDERS AND DEACONS

Elders and Deacons follow Christ's example of servant leadership. Here at WHPC, the role of Elder and Deacon are equal in stature and importance, but differ in function and nature of service.

WHPC Elders are men and women who exercise leadership, government, discipline and responsibility for the life of our community.  Elders serve as members of the Session. Their role is to strengthen and nurture the faith and life of the congregation.

WHPC Deacons are men and women who are uniquely called and equipped to the ministry of mercy and compassion.  Deacons serve on Sunday mornings as greeters, ushers, prayer partners and worship assistants.  During the week, they visit hospitals, care facilities and homes to deliver meals, provide prayer support and encourage those in crisis.
