Luis does a wonderful job and truly cares about the Members of our Church!

What is an Elder:

Our Church Leaders are know as Ruling Elders who are elected by the Congregation, Ordained for Life and serve for a period of 3 years on the governing body called the Session.  Elders previously ordained may be elected to serve again after going off Session for at least 1 year.


Each Elder at BRPC is also a Team Leader responsible for the care and function of a particular Ministry Team. Serving Elders meet as scheduled by the Session to discuss and direct the Business of the Church.  Church Members and Friends are encouraged to discuss their ideas and concerns with the Elders serving on Session.
