Ministry Teams

The work of First Presbyterian Church of Pensacola is divided among several ministry teams. Each team focuses on particular kinds of tasks. For example, Congregational Care and Fellowship focuses on helping folks who may be ill, homebound or going through a difficult time.

Each team is led by an elder who serves as the Team Moderator. Other elders may also serve on Teams in supporting roles. Elders are nominated and selected by the congregation each year. The session meets on the third Tuesday of each month, and the Clerk of Session for 2022 is Diane Davis.

The elders and meeting times for each ministry team are listed below. If you have any questions, needs or a desire to join one of our ministry teams, please contact the staff members for that team.
