Trinity functions under the presbyterian form of church government. The congregation nominates and elects elders and deacons to serve as the officers of the church. These elders (known as ruling elders) along with the pastors (called teaching elders) are responsible for the church's governance and spiritual oversight. Deacons are responsible for meeting the physical needs of the congregation and for managing the church's resources. Both elders and deacons serve on various committees and ministry teams with congregational members and staff of the church.

Elders
The body responsible for the church's governance and spiritual oversight is known as the Session. It consists of the ruling elders and pastors who have been called by the congregation.

Within the Session, nine ruling elders and two teaching elders serve on a rotating basis as the Church Governance Commission (CGC), to which the Session has delegated authority to make administrative decisions. When the CGC deals with matters of church policy or fails to reach a 2/3 majority on any vote, it passes its recommendations to the full Session, with whom authority resides. Ruling elders not on the CGC serve as shepherding elders; in their roles as elders residing in particular geographical areas of the community they are also known as parish elders. The CGC ordinarily meets twice a month, and the full Session convenes quarterly. The Session has two officers: the moderator, who is one of the teaching elders, and the clerk, a ruling elder.

The Session also has other standing committees. In addition, ruling elders are members of the various ministry teams and churchwide committees and serve as liaisons with the Session.

Deacons
Deacons are responsible for seeing that the physical needs of the congregation are met, for managing the church's resources, and for cultivating a heart of compassion and a spirit of benevolence within the church body.

The deacons select one of their members as their administrative chair. Each deacon participates in the work of one of six subcommittees of the diaconate. Deacons serve the entire congregation, with special attention to the members of their own parishes.
