Deacon Ministry

We are so glad to have 48 men and women currently serving as active deacons at First Baptist Church.  Each deacon has a family list of approximately eight church families that they minister to in good times and hard times, times of celebration and times of sadness. 

September is deacon-nominating time at FBC when one-third of the deacons come up for re-election.  To serve as a deacon, candidates may be male or female, must be at least 21 years of age and a member of the church for at least one year.  Deacons are nominated by other members of the church, voted on, and they serve three-year terms.
