Our mission is to function as servants of our Lord Jesus Christ serving in and through the church as partners with the pastor in enabling the church to fulfill its Kingdom mission.
Why should someone join your ministry?
A man should seek to join the deacons ministry if he feels led by the Lord to serve as in
Acts 6:1-7 and be tested as in 1 Timothy 3:8-10.
Where is help needed in your Ministry?
The deacons ministry is open to men selected by the church who are willing to serve and be tested as set forth in the answer above.
How would someone contact you if they are interested in volunteering or joining your ministry?
How would someone contact you if they are interested in volunteering or joining your ministry? Unlike most other ministries, one cannot simply join the deacons ministry. St. Stephens periodically has a need to add more deacons and opens a formal nomination process. During this process members of the church may nominate potential deacon candidates. The candidates are formally interviewed by the deacons and the pastor. If a man is willing to serve, and is selected, he must undergo training successfully before being ordained as a deacon by the pastor.
