The Diaconate (1) assists the Pastor in caring for the spiritual interests of the Church, the administration and preparation of the ordinances, and the direction of all public worship services; (2) is responsible for supplying the Pulpit with speakers when the office of Pastor is vacant; (3) interviews and recommends new candidates for membership in the Church; (4) makes regular visitations to the membership with special consideration given to the sick, needy, and distressed; and (5) supports the Church Clerk in the maintenance of the "Active" membership rolls.
Most importantly, Deacons are servants who assist, encourage and minister to the needs of the congregation and the ministerial staff.
The Diaconate or Deacon Ministry consists of Deacons, men and women, who have been ordained into the ministry of serving GOD through their service to others according to Acts 6:1-8, and I Timothy 3:8-13.
