This is a further division of the district and forms the base of the five-tier administrative structure of the Church. The local congregation is headed by a Presiding Elder who acts for the district pastor and sees to the implementation of decisions taken by the District Pastor, with the aid of all the Elders, Deacons, Deaconesses, Committees and Ministry leaders in the congregation.

This well-coordinated chain of command ensures both vertical and horizontal flow of information in the Church, thereby making implementation of policies and feedback very vital ingredients for effective administration.
