Deacon Mission Statement

The Deacon Ministry is to serve the leadership of the church and to help support the vision of True Vine Ministries. As Deacons, we are called to be dedicated Christians who use their spiritual gifts in the ministry for the total wellbeing of the church and God’s people. Furthermore we want to be Christ-like, sociable, nurturing, and sensitive to the presence of God’s spirit in our lives and in the lives of other believers in the church. We want to provide practical and supportive ministry through acts of service to all other ministries within the body of Christ.
