Deacon: From the Greek word diakonos meaning “servant.”

The Deacon Ministry at Calvary can be summarized in one word, service. Our main priority is follow the Biblical mandate to take care of the widows & orphans in our church community. We do not guide our Pastor in what to preach, we do not pick out carpet colors, and we do not govern the church...we simply serve.



Our service focuses in five specific priorities:

  •     Ministry through Benevolence.

  •     Ministry to the People (i.e. hospitals, shut-ins, widows).

  •     Ministry of Reconciliation.

  •     Ministry to the Pastor.

  •     Exercise Leadership of the church during periods of absence of the Pastor.

Deacons at Calvary serve a 3 year term and then take a 1 year hiatus before going through the nomination process to serve again. If you would like more information about our deacon ministry, feel free to email our chairman, Matt Snipes.
