The Deacon Board was formed in 1902 to serve as a council of advisors assisting the pastor with all matters pertaining to the workings and well-being of the church. The board is responsible for formulating plans for the progress of the church, assisting the pastor in attending to the needs of the membership, working with the pastor and trustees in making major financial decisions. The deacons are responsible for devotions, prayer services and training of new members and other activities that enhance the overall church ministry. The board has (17) members and it is their desire to continue to meet goals and challenges in the spirit of brotherhood to ensure the development of Christians through guidance and leadership for the promotion of God's Kingdom.
