Pacific Palisades Presbyterian Board of Deacons
Our Deacons participate in a ministry of sympathy, witness, and service after the example of Jesus Christ. They promote a ministry of caring within our church and respond to food, shelter, and other needs of people in our congregation. Each Deacon is assigned a flock of members and every Palisades Presbyterian member has an assigned Deacon. Each Deacon is responsible for keeping in contact with and caring for his/her flock of members.
Deacons are elected by the congregation and they elect their own Moderator. Our Deacons are also available at times of bereavement to stay with the family in our chapel and to be available as needed.
Our Deacon Pastoral liaison for the Deacons is Reverend Grace Park.

Pacific Palisades Presbyterian Elders
Elders are responsible for the day-to-day operations of the church. Together with our ministers, they exercise leadership, government, and discipline. They serve faithfully as members of the session. It is the duty of elders, individually and jointly, to strengthen and nurture the faith and life of the congregation committed to their charge. Those duties which all Christians are bound to perform by the law of love are especially incumbent upon elders because of their calling to office and are to be fulfilled by them as official responsibilities.
