The Deacon’s Ministry of First Baptist Church of South Orange is a ministry created to serve the needs of the entire congregation. We endeavor to assist our Pastor in all of his efforts to carry out the vision given to him by God. In the 2013, the Deacon’s Ministry have updated the way we address the needs for assistance by creating a new Benevolence Request Application. One of the more visible efforts the deacon’s assist is in the wellbeing of our members and the community though Eternal Light Share, our food package distribution program. We as deacons are looking to be more effective in our efforts in service the membership in 2014. One main focus for the deacons this year is to assist the administration in updating the church directory in an effort to assure every member is fully serviced and served as members of our blessed ministry.
