What If: We Decide Everyone Matters?

Deacon Ministry

Following the example of the earliest Christian church, as recorded in Acts 6:1-7, West Lynchburg Baptist Church has set aside a group of committed laymen to assist the pastor in meeting the spiritual and physical needs of the congregation. Active deacons are selected by the church according to criteria outlined in 1 Timothy 3:1-14, and serve three-year terms. Each deacon is assigned a group of church families to whom he ministers. Deacons minister in a variety of ways, including visiting members who are hospitalized, comforting families following the death of a loved one, and serving as spiritual advisors. Some deacons have even been known to shovel snow for shut-ins and wash windows for widows! In a word, deacons at West Lynchburg are servants, not senators.
