Deacon Ministry

Man Kneeling with a Bible

Because we care for you and your family, the pastor and deacons of Faith Baptist Fellowship are committed to the Deacon Family Ministry Plan. It is a plan through which the deacons can join the pastor in 1ninistering to the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of each church member and family. We want to make certain that every member and family in Faith Baptist Fellowship experiences the love of the whole congregation. We want to be known throughout our con1munity as a loving and caring church.
