Deacons find their roots in scripture in Acts 6, in which the first disciples empower a separate group of leaders to serve in areas of service and fellowship (Greek for servant/service is diakonia). They largely guide our mission life, as well as the ways we care for each other.
Each year seven deacons are elected to three-year terms, for a total of twenty-one rotating leaders. They guide the work of the following committees: Assimilation, Congregational Care, Fellowship, Global Missions, and Local Missions.
