The role of a deacon is to lead an exemplary life and uphold the doctrines, teachings, and practices of the church. The deacon ministry's central interest is the spiritual and physical well being of the church family.


The purpose of the deacon's ministry is to work closely with the pastor, especially in performing baptisms and administering the Lord's Supper. The Deacon Ministry strives to keep unity and peace among members, visit the sick and shut-in, call and visit members to keep them informed of church activities and opportunities. Each member is assigned a deacon. Please click here to view who your deacon is.
