This page provides resources, contacts and assistance for ruling elders in The Presbyterian Church in Canada.
How to Order Resources
This PDF contains the resource Equipping Elders, a compilation of “For Elders” and “Equipping For… Elders” publications that have been produced quarterly since 1997. In most cases the articles are copied directly into this resource; in other instances, they are edited or parts are selected and placed into appropriate sections. It is available for purchase as a binder with hole-punched sheets for $23.
Clergy Resources for Session Meetings and Retreats is a compilation of session starters and workshops designed to answer common questions about session meetings.
This handbook was written primarily for members of the board of managers to help them understand their work in the church. However, ministers and members of Session will also benefit from reading it. The handbook is available for purchase for $3.
This resource has been prepared to provide introductory information about discerning a call to eldership – to discern one’s own call or to nominate others who might be called. The hope is that this resource might encourage readers to learn more about the role of elder and help start conversations about becoming a church elder.
