Ruling elders are equal partners in leadership within the denomination, but ruling elders rarely have education funds available to them from the church to further their own development. The possibility of ruling elders knowing ruling elders from other congregations in their subject area of assignment on session and/or interest is vitally important for health and creativity and at the same time increasingly rare. So a team of people within the Charlotte Presbytery created an elder symposium, and we invite you to replicate their success in your own presbytery!
