Our congregation is a part of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and follows the governing structure of the denomination. Ours is one of 96 congregations and worshiping communities of the Presbytery of New York City.

The local church is governed by the Session, which is composed of church members who are elected and ordained by the congregation as Elders to lead in the governance, spiritual nurture, and care of the congregation. They serve for three-year terms except for the Pastor, who serves for as long as the Pastor holds that position.
