Session/Council:  

"The session is the council for the congregation.  It shall be composed of those persons elected by the congregation to active service as ruling elders, together with all installed pastors and associate pastors ... The session shall have responsibility for governing the congregation and guiding its witness to the sovereign activity of God in the world, so that the congregation is and becomes a community of faith, hope, love, and witness ... Ruling elders are so named not because they "lord it over" the congregation (Matt.20:25), but because they are chosen by the congregation to discern and measure its fidelity to the Word of God, and to strengthen and nurture its faith and life."
