EMBC Deacon Ministry

We follow the leadership of the Pastor and minister in our church as we are called
and instructed. Our Ministry is dedicated to the service of our Lord and Savior Jesus
Christ by our example of strong Christian virtues.
Our Purpose
It is the Deacons' duty to shore up and oversee the needs of God's house and God's
people, and to support and assist the Pastor and the ministerial staff so that they
would be free to concentrate on seeing to the spiritual needs of the body of Christ.
In assisting the pastor with the simple tools to facilitate the bringing of the word, we
also attend to the comfort and any special needs the Pastor's family may have,
including special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries and any other celebrated
Our deacons accomplish these tasks through both personal and team involvement.
EMBC Deacons are charged with 3 overarching tasks in the church by-laws:
1. Caring for the church's members and other persons in the community.
2. Leading the church in achieving its mission.
3. Promoting and participating in the church's outreach and visitation.
