LEADERSHIP
“Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it’s the same God who activates all of them in everyone.” — I CORINTHIANS 12:4-6

Leadership

In addition to possessing the necessary gifts and abilities, those who serve in leadership roles are persons of strong faith, dedicated discipleship, and share their love of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord in the church and in the world.

LEADERSHIP

At First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale, our officers are elected by our congregation to serve for three-year terms. The two categories of officers in the church are Elders and Deacons.

ELDERS

The Elders are responsible for spiritual oversight and guidance of the church body. Church Elders serve as members of the Session and provide leadership as committee members and chairpersons in worship, mission, and nurture programs for all ages.
