The Deacons Ministry of Morning Star Baptist Church is comprised of eternal servants/disciples of Jesus Christ and all are officers of the Church. We base our scriptural inception on Acts 6:1-7. Our firm commitment is to Christ and to His kingdom building as his humble servants and to our Pastor, who is the under shepherd. We pursue the high calling in Christ Jesus by regularly attending church services, conferences, leading in the devotions, worship services, prayer, studying the Bible, evangelizing, tithing and attending Church Business meetings. We are responsible for the administration of congregational care, benevolence, church discipline and reconciliation.

We hold up the arms of our Pastor by studying the Word of God and implementing God’s vision as it is given to him by and through the Holy Spirit. We see ourselves as servants of Jesus Christ assisting the Pastoral Staff in the care and spiritual development of the Church. We desire to fervently pray for our Pastor, his family, our congregation and work with them in the spiritual process of equipping the Saints.
