Leadership at First Presbyterian of Troy is made up of:
Ruling Elders are so named because they are chosen by the congregation to discern and measure its fidelity to the Word of God, and to strengthen and nurture its faith and life. Ruling Elders have the responsibility for the life of the congregation as well as for the whole church.
The ministry of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of compassion, witness, and service, sharing in the redeeming love of Jesus Christ for the poor, the hungry, the sick, the lost, the friendless, the oppressed, those burdened by unjust policies or structures, or anyone in distress. Our deacons consist of members who are elected by the congregation and are active within the church and the surrounding community.
We have a Pastor, Bookkeeper and Music Director on staff.
