Church Leadership of First Presbyterian Church of Manhattan, KS
The authority of the church ultimately lies in the words of Scripture and the movement of God in our lives. God blesses every individual with unique and special gifts and talents that enable us to minister to each other and to the world in the name of Christ.
We believe that God calls certain individuals to serve the church body in specific leadership roles.
These individuals are nominated, ordained, and installed by the congregation as Elders, who serve on the church’s Session, or Deacons. These leadership bodies are designed to listen to the voice of the congregation, serve their best interests, and seek out God’s leadership in every decision in the life of the church.
