Deacons at The Village Church minister to those who are in crisis or in distressing circumstances. Unlike elders, who are responsible for teaching and spiritual oversight, deacons focus on deed ministry, being enabled and compelled by God’s mercy toward our personal and group suffering. Deacons help to assess needs, determine the church’s response, and steward the church’s resources.
When to contact the deacons:
- You are struggling with something that is seriously disrupting your welfare or the welfare of those dependent upon you
- You identify a need in the life of a church member or regular attender that you would like to bring to the church’s attention
- You would like to offer a skill, resource, or helping hand for certain situations
If you are interested in contacting the deacons, you can email the deacons at firstname.lastname@example.org.
