First Baptist Church has over 50 deacons who are committed to serving the body. The Deacon Ministry involves prayer, encouragement, service, and ministry to the family at First. Each deacon is called by the church and ordained to this servant ministry. They pray for the members, serve in many areas of the fellowship, visit those in need, minister to the widows in the church, and follow up on guests who come to worship each Sunday.
In Acts 6, the early church chose out men who were of good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and of wisdom. Their initial task was to be servants of the body so that the apostles could devote themselves to prayer and the ministry of the Word. They were pastor supporters, prayer warriors, peace makers, and servants to the people.
