Harrison Street Missionary Baptist Church

Deacon’s Ministry

Deacons are chosen from the membership of the church who demonstrate the scriptural qualifications found in (1st Timothy 3:2-7; Titus 1:6-9; 1st Peter 5:2-3). Deacons serve to provide spiritual support to the Pastor in the discipleship of new converts; to pray for the sick (James 5:14); to encourage and develop spiritual gifts and ministries in the body; and to assist in the administration of the ordinances of the church. They provide counsel and mutual assistance to the Pastor in the administration of church ministry.
