As Christians, we are called to belong as well as believe. We are meant to belong to Christ’s family & be members of His body. The Deacons are charged with helping people connect with God & each other through Jesus Christ & His church. "So now you Gentiles are no longer strangers & foreigners. You are citizens along with all of God’s holy people. You are members of God’s family" (Ephesians 2:19).

The Deacons provide pastoral care by ministering to the congregation through ministries of the Word, of Intercession & of Encouragement. They are called & trained to work alongside the staff as lay ministers, seeking to provide caring ministries to the church following the guidelines of their historic biblical office.

The Deacons serve a vital role in assisting the church ministry staff in ministering to the needs of the church body. In this role, they maintain close communication with both the membership & the staff ministers. In so doing they seek to fulfill the biblical mandate, "Help carry one another’s burdens, and in this way you will obey the law of Christ" (Galatians 6:2).
