Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business. But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.
The Deacon's Ministry serves directly under the Pastor, assisting in carrying out the mission of the Church. They assist with the preparation of candidates for baptism and they look after the church’s widows and orphans. The Deacon's Ministry helps to enhance the spiritual life of the church by visiting the sick and shut-in offering them prayer, guidance, and financial aid upon request. They pray and work faithfully together with our church members, ministries, and Associate Ministers.
DEACONS ARE LEADERS in the church and to the members. Each church member upon joining is assigned to a specific Deacon. The deacons serve as a help and liaison to lighten the load of the pastor in meeting the needs of the Covenant Members. Members go to deacons for information, understanding and assistance on matters of concern and interest pertaining to the church. Deacons serve the congregation and assist the pastor in leading others to help fulfill God's vision and mission for the ministry and the goals of church.
