As a presbyterian and reformed church, our local church government is composed of the ordained offices of minister (pastor), elder, and deacon. “Those who share in the rule of the church may be called elders (presbyters), bishops, or church governors. Those who minister in mercy and service are called deacons. Those elders who have been endued and called of Christ to labor also in the Word and teaching are called ministers” (BCO FG V).
