A parish associate is a minister who serves in some validated ministry other than the local parish, or is a member-at-large, or is honorably retired, but who wishes to maintain a relationship with a particular church or churches in keeping with ordination to the ministry of the Word and Sacrament.
We are very fortunate to have Sean join our Church Family as the Administrative Assistant. He comes to us with a wealth of knowledge and and experience and is eager to learn everything that he can in order to help relieve some of our Elders and restore this position!
And, we are very lucky that he makes our heads turn when playing the Piano, especially by heart!

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.
