Elders are elected annually by the congregation of FPC Dallas, and together with our pastors, exercise leadership, government, spiritual discernment, and discipline. They are responsible for nurturing the faith of our congregation through worship, education, and service. Collectively they are known as the Session.
Deacons are elected annually by the congregation of FPC Dallas. They are often described as the "hands and feet" of our church, and they ordained to a ministry 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.
