Deacon Ministry

WHAT IS OUR MISSION?
The mission of the Deacon Ministry is to equip and empower biblically-qualified men to serve the members of the church family through personal care and follow-up (1 Pet.5:2; Acts 6:1-5). We believe the elders and deacons of our church have a stewardship before God to provide consistent, on-going care to all of our members, helping them grow to be more like Jesus.
