Knox Elders

Elders and Deacons are members of the Knox congregation who are elected by the congregation and ordained to serve three-year terms in leadership roles in the church community. The Knox Church office can help you contact any of the elders listed below.

An Elder is a member of The Session who is committed to strengthening and nurturing the faith and life of the congregation. Beginning with formal training in a relational style of leadership, Elders maintain Knox’s vision and mission by leading the church’s decision-making on these Committees.
