Deacons Ministry

Chairman of Deacons: Doug Porter


1 Timothy 3:8-13 says, Likewise deacons must be reverent, not double-tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy for money, holding the mystery of the faith with a pure conscience. But let these also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons, being found blameless. Likewise, their wives must be reverent, not slanderers, temperate, faithful in all things. Let deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. For those who have served well as deacons obtain for themselves a good standing and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.

In the Bible, words have specific meanings and the word “deacon” means servant.

We are blessed to have men serving as deacons to care for the membership and assist our staff with meeting the needs of the congregation and our community.

Our deacons meet with the pastor on a regular basis to pray together, share the needs of the church, and support our ministers as they carry out their work. Our deacons are available to our church body should you have a need, they are but a phone call away and the “on duty” schedule (with phone numbers) is posted weekly in the bulletin.

Serving as a deacon is a calling of God that is then affirmed by the church. Pray with us that the Lord will bring forward those with a heart to serve our congregation as it grows and as additional deacons are needed.

***Members may request a printed list of our Deacons (name and and their contact information) from the church office and are encouraged to reach out to the deacons “on duty” when a need arises.  This helps our church office and staff  AND our deacons as they exercise their ministry calling.
