Church Leadership

The leadership of Wayne Presbyterian Church consists of our Pastors, Staff, Elders and Deacons.

The Session is made up of the Pastors of the church and all Elders elected and installed to active service. The Session typically meets on the third Tuesday of the month. Session meetings are normally moderated by a called and installed pastor and minutes are recorded by a Clerk. Elders are elected for three-year terms.
