DEACON MINISTRY: The Deacons are one of two official biblical offices in the church. The scriptural duties of a Deacon are found in Acts 6:3, “Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.” We are blessed to have two strong Deacons and one Deacon in training as God continues to use them.
Deacons serve The Lord by being servant leaders following to lead as they serve the pastor by serving this congregation. They visit the sick, bereaved, and those in need. They are prayer warriors who stand firmly on The Word of God with compassion for the people of God. They work and minister as an extension of the Pastor. They have the love of God in their heart. Their work is based on their faith in Jesus Christ and their hope is renewed by the Holy Ghost.
