Our Leadership Boards

The leadership team at First Presbyterian Church of Haddon Heights is structured according to the guidelines set forth by the Presbyterian Church USA. We are blessed to have a group of team members that are truly dedicated to Christ, our Church, and the local community. They continue to lead our Church body with integrity and a servant's heart.  Below are our current leaders.  The numeral after each person’s name indicates whether the incumbent is serving a first or second term (all are limited to two consecutive terms before needing to rotate off for at least one year to ensure diverse and representative leadership).


The Session is a board of nine elders, each elected for a three year term, that functions as the governing body of the church. Each member serves as the chairperson for our different committees.   The Session meets monthly on the second Wednesday of the month.
