Serving with the heart of Jesus
The Biblical definition of a Deacon is that he is a servant in the church. He is not called to run the church. Nor is he called to just listen to complaints. He is called to minister to you in your time of need. If he can pray with you, encourage you, or give Spiritual advice, please call him in your time of need. Call the Church at 843-726-3631.
Read it, encourage your Deacons, and stay in prayer for them.
