Our Leadership

Christ Presbyterian Church is governed and cared for by the Session (the Board of Elders). The Session consists of Ruling Elders and the Teaching Elder (the Pastor). Elders are elected by the congregation to oversee and supervise the entire life of the congregation. Ruling Elders are elected for life but can only serve on the Session for 2 consecutive 3-year terms in a row.

According to Scripture, those who bear the office of the Elder should be mature believers, led by the Holy Spirit, who exhibit a manner of life that conforms to the biblical description of an officer in Christ’s Church.

Serving as an Elder is not an indication of special pre-eminence, but rather indicates a call to service, to ministry, to special discipleship, and the evidencing of the fruit of the Spirit in every part of life.

Jody was born in Pittsfield MA, but grew up in Windsor, Ct before heading off to Syracuse University for a degree in Music Industry, where he met his wife, Mary. He and his wife are the parents of five daughters and two sons, as well as the grandparents of four.  After serving as a saxophonist in the US Army Band at Ft Sheridan, IL, they returned to New England. Jody has been attending CPC since 2016. He has recently been reading a lot about Church History and is interested in studying the roots of the Reformation.  His love of jazz (Gerry Mulligan and Stan Getz are his favorites) is surpassed only by his love of ice cream. You can find Jody most Tuesday mornings serving breakfast at the Springfield Rescue Mission, where he was recently appointed to the Board of Directors.

Teaching Elder (Pastor)

Tracy Andrew Johnson

  Send Email  •  (413)636-5664

Tracy has served CPC with his wife, Jessi, and their four children, Andrew, Joshua, Hannah, and Luke since September 2005. He graduated from Seattle Pacific University, majoring in Educational Ministry and Religious Studies. He graduated with a Masters in Divinity at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. If you really want to know him, though, you have to understand his passion for Seattle sports (Mariners, Seahawks, Sonics, Sounders), U2, and really anything regarding Seattle. (He still carries a key ring that he got at his first Mariners game.) To avoid long and boring conversations with Tracy do not mention the Seahawks, Mariners or U2. He also secretly listens to Neil Diamond in the privacy of his home.
