Who We Are


Deacons' Ministry of Greater Springfield

"Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord."

1 Corinthians 15:58


Deacons are servants who are set aside for the purpose of assisting the pastor in caring for the membership. This is done by visiting the sick and the bereaved, leading a fervent prayer life for the benefit of the church body, leading the devotional services, assisting with baptism, serving the Holy Communion, assisting members with needs or securing the appropriate resources to meet those needs.
