In the Presbyterian Church, ELDERS are chosen by the congregation to strengthen and nurture the faith and life of the congregation. Together with the pastors, the Elders exercise leadership and have responsibilities for all aspects of the life of Fairmont Church. The Session oversees the ministry of the church as they chair and serve as members on the Christian Education, Discipleship & Small Groups, Evangelism & Member Care, Mission Interpretation, Personnel and Worship teams. The Session is made up of Elders, the pastors of the church and a clerk. Pastor Brian Maguire is Moderator and Kerri Miles is Clerk of the Session.

DEACONS are the caregivers of the congregation. They visit the sick and homebound, provide coffee fellowship after both worship services, provide receptions after funerals, prepare the elements for communion, plan and host the church wide picnic. They also oversee ushers, acolytes and the flower arrangement schedule for worship services.
TRUSTEES manage the church property including the building and grounds and media equipment, administer the endowment fund, oversee the financial affairs of the church and make recommendations of designated and undesignated memorial gifts. The Board of Trustees elect a president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer and assistant treasurer each year. The elected treasurer is, upon Session approval, elected as Church Treasurer.
