The Deacon Ministry is a ministry of ordained laypersons called out by God to this unique position of service in the local church. Scriptural qualifications are set forth in 1 Timothy 3 and Acts 6. Ordination by this church or by another Southern Baptist Church is required.

Deacons, likewise, should be worthy of respect, not hypocritical, not drinking a lot of wine, not greedy for money, holding the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. And they must also be tested first; if they prove blameless, then they can serve as deacons. Wives, too, must be worthy of respect, not slanderers, self-controlled, faithful in everything. Deacons must be husbands of one wife, managing their children and their own households competently. For those who have served well as deacons acquire a good standing for themselves and great boldness in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.”1 Timothy 3:8-13

“In those days, as the number of the disciples was multiplying, there arose a complaint by the Hellenistic Jews against the Hebraic Jews that their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution. Then the Twelve summoned the whole company of the disciples and said, “It would not be right for us to give up preaching about God to wait on tables. Therefore, brothers, select from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and wisdom, whom we can appoint to this duty. But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the preaching ministry.” The proposal pleased the whole company. So they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit, and Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolaus, a proselyte from Antioch . They had them stand before the apostles, who prayed and laid their hands on them. So the preaching about God flourished, the number of disciples in Jerusalem multiplied greatly and a large group of priests became obedient to the faith.” Acts 6:1-6

Deacons are responsible for ministerial support of the pastor, assisting in preparation for the ordinances, visitation of members, serving congregational needs and concerns, church discipline, conflict resolution and oversight of church unity. The Deacon Family Ministry is intended to be a blessing to the Church and to the Deacons. This is a position of humble servanthood to the Church Body.

The Deacon Family Ministry consists of enough Deacons to accomplish the Ministry. This quantity will be determined by the Church Pastor and/or Deacon Body. The addition of Deacons shall be considered as the church grows, such that a Deacon should not serve more than ten households, unless there is not enough qualified laypersons to be nominated or to serve as a Deacon.

Church members are placed in CARE GROUPS; a Deacon and/or a Yokefellow will serve and minister to each CARE GROUP.
