The Ministry of Deacons shall be composed of all deacons/deaconesses chosen by and from the congregation who meet the qualifications as described in the Scriptures. All deacons/deaconesses shall serve a term of three years. After three years, a deacon/deaconess has to be reelected to serve another term. They shall be mature lay persons who demonstrate a spiritual wisdom and compassion so that they can mercifully carry out the work of the ministry.
Deacons/Deaconesses help provide loving care to our church family, especially when a church member is home bound, in the hospital, or has lost a loved one. Deacons/Deaconesses also help to answer urgent phone calls after regular office hours.
