Meet Our Leaders and Staff

There are three distinct groups of leaders here at Witherspoon. First, our Elders, second our Deacons, and then third, our active staff.


The Council of Session consists of the Pastor and the nine elders in active service.  Each class of elders consists of three members elected by the congregation to serve three-year terms.  These terms are staggered so that three elders retire from the Session each year, and three newly elected elders join the Session each year.  The Session meets on a monthly basis to carry out its responsibilities for the mission and government of the church.

  • Elder Muriel Treadwell, Clerk of Session
  • Elder Micros Berry
  • Elder Linda Bright
  • Elder Carolyn Cisse
  • Elder Robert Dixon
  • Elder Georgia Dodson
  • Elder Nikki Graham
  • Elder Dr. Patrick Jones
  • Elder Patrcia Johnson
  • Elder Kathryn Jordan

The primary role of the deacons at Witherspoon is to provide a ministry of care and compassion to our members in cooperation with our pastors.  Deacons are elected to a three-year term
