BPC Ruling Elders
All Presbyterian churches are led by a council of men and women elected by the congregation and installed for three-year terms. These leaders are ordained as Ruling Elders. They receive training on church history, polity and the Confessions. Upon being installed they take vows that are identical to the vows taken by pastors (Teaching Elders). The practice of ordaining laypeople to lead the church at all levels of church government is what distinguishes Presbyterians: in the New Testament the word for elder is presbuteros (πρεσβύτερος).
