FAQ: What is a Deacon?

Today’s FAQ is What is a Deacon?

Deacons are church members who are elected by the church to assist the pastor in the spiritual affairs of the church.  

In the Bible, the word “Deacon” is translated as “servant” or “minister.” Naturally, deacons will be involved in serving the needs of the church.  This includes visitation to the sick, but it also includes helping to promote the church as we serve, and minister to, our community.

Elected deacons also act as a legal board of trustees for the church, they have regular meetings with the Lead Pastor on church business and they also advise on and approve our budget.

Our 2020 Deacons, as elected by Church Members, are Tim McMann, Rob Nicholls, Pete Van Genne, Gord Stark and Luc Wessel.
