The leadership of Mission del Sol includes elders, deacons, commission members, and other officers. If you are interested in joining a commission or becoming an elder or a deacon, please contact the church office for more information.


Elders make up the church’s governing body which is called the Session.  Mission del Sol, like all Presbyterian churches, is a representative democracy. The word “Presbyterian” actually comes from the Greek word presbuteros which means “elder.”

We are governed by elders who are democratically chosen from and by the entire congregation. Governance and authority over church matters resides with these elected elders.  Our Session oversees the day-to-day-work of the church and supervises the Deacons, who are elected to conduct the temporal and charitable ministry of the church.  The Session is composed of 18 ruling elders. Elders serve a three-year term.

2017-2018 Session Commissions:

Commissions are smaller groups that include elders, deacons, and members of the congregation who work together to manage various aspects of Mission del Sol.

The role of the Deacons is one of “sympathy, service and witness” to the love of God as shown in the life of Jesus Christ.  In the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A), the office of Deacon is designed “to minister to those in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and to any who may be in distress both within and beyond the community of faith.” (Book of Order, G-6.0402). The origin of “deacon” is the Greek word diakonos, “servant.”

At Mission del Sol we have an elected Board of Deacons who oversee our numerous mission projects and guide the congregation in reaching out to others in our community and around the world. Deacons meet the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the library.

Deacon Co-Moderators: Bill Brazelton, and Flori Welty
