Deacons Ministry
Chairman of the Deacons: Paul Chapman

In accordance with the meaning of the word and the practice of the New Testament, deacons are to be servants of the church. Their task is to serve, with the pastor and the staff, in the performance of pastoral ministries including:

1. Proclaiming the gospel to believers and unbelievers.

2. Caring for church members and other persons in the community.

Our deacons are also responsible for our benevolence program. One percent of the churches gifts go to the benevolence fund to help church members and others in our community. The pastor at times asks the deacons for their advice and wise counsel. The families of the church are divided among the 14 deacons. This is called the Deacon Family Ministry Plan. 

Our deacons are responsible for preparing and serving the Lord's Supper, preparing for baptisms and assisting the pastor at weddings, funerals and hospital visitations. We have some of the finest deacons in America!
