Red Clay's leadership includes a Session of Ruling Elders and a Board of Deacons.  Please visit our staff directory to view Red Clay's staff.

The Session (Ruling Elders)

Red Clay’s elders serve three-year terms, giving leadership to the life of the church and participating in Session. Elders' lives reflect a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, Christian maturity, a walk and conversation that is an example beyond reproach, the gift of commission to govern, an active prayer life, and service to Red Clay’s committees and ministries.

The Board of Deacons

I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me. -- Matthew 25:40

A Deacon is someone who loves the Lord and acts upon that love with gifts of service through a variety of ministries, including calling on new members to extend the hand of friendship and welcome them into the Red Clay family, visiting elderly members, serving Communion to home-bound members, delivering flowers to those who are ill or shut-in, bringing meals to families in need of encouragement, and planning events to encourage fellowship among members.

Moderator: Kathy Koch
