Deacon Board

Deacon-BoardMISSION STATEMENT:  Responsible for administering to the physical and spiritual needs of the congregation, promoting spiritual growth of the membership and the community, and equipping all members for the work of the ministry.  A group of deeply dedicated, friendly, outgoing Christian men who care about all of God’s people, Deacons are ready to respond in any area of life, but especially in case of sickness, family problems, death of loved ones, or times of special joy, offering Christian friendship and support and notifying the Pastor when there is a particular need for pastoral care.

BRIEF HISTORY:  New Testament Deacons serve the Lord by conducting the caring ministry of the church — doing the benevolence work, visiting the sick, being alert to the spiritual needs of the congregation — for the purposes of freeing the pastoral staff to focus on prayer and the ministry of the Word, promoting unity within the church, and facilitating the spread of the gospel.
