Local congregations in the Presbyterian Church govern themselves through an elected board called the Session (from the Latin word meaning “to sit”).  The Clerk of Session is technically the head of the Session and another person, usually a pastor, serves as the Moderator for the meetings.  This unique structure has been admired by many in government and other denominations for its separation of power amongst the different groups and was developed by John Calvin in Geneva, Switzerland and spread to Scotland by John Knox and eventually to the United States of America!
