The Deacons of First Baptist Church play a crucial role in promoting and maintaining the spiritual health of the congregation.  Our Deacons are ministry focused. The men and women of our Diaconate are encouraged to discover their spiritual gifts and to utilize them as part of our team structure focusing on worship, outreach and pastoral care ministries.

Our Deacons lead in the serving of communion and assist with the administration of Baptism.  They also join the Pastor and ministerial staff in setting general direction for the congregation through an ongoing process of spiritual discernment.
