Staff and Leadership

Meet the Spiritual Team

The best church leader is a team. At Stockbridge Presbyterian Church, we’re blessed with an outstanding group of dedicated believers and religious leaders who conduct services, run events and keep our community on a clear spiritual path.

Ruling Elders 

An important part of our team is we are organized by having ruling elders make decisions on behalf of the church. They are elected by the congregation. Our elders are separated into three committees. 

Discipleship: Includes worship and Christian Formation for all ages. Our elders currently are JoLinda Ingram and Earline Smith. 

Witness: Includes congregational care, fellowship, outreach, and mission. Our elders currently are Betsy Sierra and Paul Szeto. 

Resources: Includes personnel, building and grounds, and finances. Our elders currently are Kim Seal and Thomas Baxter.
