What we Do

You may join us as an individual  Baptist Deacon or as a part of an organized body of Deacons. We encourage you to become involved at the local level to perpetuate ongoing fellowship 

Local Groups are advised to form a Women's Auxiliary and to include Deaconess and other Christian Women.

Usually, a minimum of three Boards of Deacons from nearby Churches is sufficient to form a local unit.

​Who we are

2.Bringing a closer relationship between the Deacons and the members of our Churches;
