The Synod of Alberta and the Territories is currently divided into five areas. Each of these area is headed by an elected Area Dean, which are listed below.

New in 2017 is the formation of Area Leadership Teams which were described and elaborated upon at the 2017 Fall Area Gatherings.

The role of the Area Dean is to assist the Bishop in the duties of installations and pastoral care of the ministers and congregations. The Deans and the Bishop meet at least once a year for spiritual renewal and to discuss programs, plans and concerns affecting Areas in the Synod.
