Leadership Team



Diaconate Ministry

Deacons are the ordained members of the Body of Christ who are given special charge to assist the Pastor and to serve all people, particularly the poor, the weak, the sick, and the lonely.  Deacons are to be icons of the servant ministry of Christ both within and beyond the Church.

Deacons must be reverent, not double-tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy for money, holding the mystery of the faith with pure conscience.  But let these also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons, being found blameless.  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. ( 1 Timothy 3:8-10, 13) (New King James Version (NKJV)
