The Deacon Board
Theological Rationale: Romans 16:1-2; Acts 6:1-7 The mission of the Deacon Board is one of service to the church. The Deacons are dedicated to faithfully execute the duties assigned to them by the Pastor. Those duties include: Preparation of the Lord’s Supper, preparing candidates for baptism, offering spiritual support and mentoring to church members, and working with and assisting other ministries as needed. As Deacons, we have a sincere love and appreciation for our Pastor, obedience to the Word of God, and fervent prayer. We are the spiritual arm of the church.
The Trustee Board
Theological Rationale: Proverbs 29:18; Philippians 2:3-4 The St. Paul Baptist Church Trustee Board is an official ministry comprised of spiritual, driven stewards dedicated to maintaining and managing the spiritual excellence of the church. The Trustee Board provides for the management of the physical building and ensures that the church is well maintained and safe for all who enter to worship. The Board reviews monthly/quarterly financial statements and initiates action to assure the fiscal viability of the church based upon its financial assets. To this end, based upon the church’s financial stability, the Trustees, in collaboration with the Pastor, Deacons/Deaconesses, prepare an annual operating budget. The board strives to be a ministry of integrity and vision.
