The Presbyterian structure operates on several levels. These levels are made up of representative bodies. They begin with the Congregation, and include the session and deacons. The session elects representatives to the presbyteries, but the presbyteries include the pastors of the churches as well. The next level is the synod and then the general assembly. This video gives a short overview:
On March 18 2018 I was called to be the new pastor at the First Presbyterian Church of Alpena. I am excited to be moving to this beautiful city at this beautiful time of the year to work in the service of the Lord with the congregation at the church. I got to meet a lot of very nice people, and hear some of their personal stories. I am looking forward to starting a new life in fellowship on the fourth of April, which will be my first day in residence. Blessings to all as Holy Week approaches!
