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.

The governing group in each congregation is called the Session, a body made up of men and women known as "Elders" who have been "set apart" by election and ordination into a supervisory role.  The Session meets monthly to conduct the business of the church. 

Elders generally serve for staggered three-year terms, with a third of the Session elected each year.  Ordination is a for-life designation.  Past Elders are part of a group called - collequially - the College of Elders.
