The office of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of sympathy, witness, and service after the example of Jesus Christ. Persons of spiritual character, honest repute, of exemplary lives, brotherly and sisterly love, warm sympathies, and sound judgment should be chosen for this office. It is the duty of deacons, first of all, to minister to those who are in need, to the sick, to the friendless and to any who may be in distress both within and beyond the community of faith.

At Good Shepherd, the Deacons lead our mercy ministries to the congregation and to the community. These ministries involve regular contact with our members, financial and spiritual counseling to members and neighbors in need, and involvement with needs in the neighborhood.

If you need to speak to a Deacon, please call the church office for a phone number or call a Deacon directly if you have their number.
