As a Presbyterian church, New Hope is led by elders elected by the congregation. There are two types of elders: Ruling Elders, who govern the church, and Teaching Elders (or Pastors), who preach, teach, perform the sacraments, and plan the church’s various activities. Together, the both types of elders care for the spiritual health of the congregation, and serve the people through prayer, counseling, and leading small groups.
New Hope’s congregation also elects Deacons and Deaconesses in addition to elders. The deacons provide hospitality to visitors, oversee men’s and women’s fellowship groups, help people discover and use their gifts and talents, care for the poor, and maintain our facility.
