Because the Apostle Paul directed Titus to "appoint elders in every town" (Titus 1:5), Westminster OPC is ruled by elders, as are all congregations of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.
Our elders are carefully examined to verify that they meet the biblical qualifications for the office in 1 Timothy 3:2-7 and Titus 1:6-9.

Because the apostles set apart "men of good repute, full of the Spirit and of wisdom" to lead in the church's ministry of mercy and to care for the practical affairs of the church in Acts 6:1-6, and the qualifications for such men in 1 Timothy 3:8-13 indicate they should be officers of the church, Westminster OPC seeks to ordain such men to the office of deacon.
Because we currently have no deacons, the elders serve as the administrator of the diaconal account. Please contact them if you are in need or would like to help the needy or the practical affairs of the church.
