Election of Elders: What does an elder do? Elders (also called “ruling elders”) play a key role in the life of the congregation. Through membership on Session, they work closely with the minister (also called the “teaching elder”) in oversight of the congregation, pastoral care, worship, Christian education, stewardship and mission, and in relations with Presbytery. Elders seek the will of God so they can lead the congregation in direction they believe Jesus would want
