Deacon Family Outreach Ministry
The Deacon Family Ministry Plan is one of the many functions of a deacon, and it is a very important one. The Deacon Family Ministry Plan is a plan through which the deacons can join the pastor and church staff in ministering to the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of each church member and family. The resident church families are divided into groups of around ten families. Each group of families is then assigned to a deacon who will minister to them over a period of time. This ministry will include visiting, witnessing, rejoicing with your family during celebratory times, giving support during a time of crisis, helping to find the answers to any faith questions, helping you find ways to serve, and praying for you and your family on a regular basis.
