1 Timothy 8:11 -
"Even so must their wives be grave, not slanders, sober
faithful in all things."

The mission Deaconess Ministry is to meet the needs of the Mt. Olive Baptist Church, under the spiritual guidance of its Pastor and the Deacons by promoting the spiritual growth in the church.

The purpose of the Deaconess Ministry is to care for and assist the needs of the overall congregation. Wherever there are sick and shut-in members as well as members in need of prayer, the Deaconess Ministry will be there to help.

They will be in contact with all six members and monitor the prayer list to ensure that members are not alone.

They are responsible for the preparation of the setting up of the Lord's Supper on the fourth Sunday of each month. The Deaconess should instruct all female baptismal candidates as to what they are supposed to wear.

Deaconess should possess the following qualities:

1. She must be a follower of Christ also Christ-like, so much that her life will be outstanding and praised by all whom she comes in contact with.

2. She should be a serious minded person, well balanced and one who knows the value of spiritual things, she should be grave, not slanderers, temperate and faithful in all things.

3. She must be familiar with all of the church laws and the doctrines of the church. She should also know the policies and practices of the church so that all of the officers can work in peace and harmony.

4. She should not be a slanderer or given to gossip, she should take part in the entire program of the church.

5. She should support the Pastor and the vision of the ministry.
