The mission of the Deacon Ministry is to serve the Lord faithfully by extending service to our church, ministries, families, one another and the community. Our guiding scripture is Colossians 3:12 which says "Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience." It s important to be a part of this ministry because deacons are called to serve others with the gifts God has given them in and outside the church.

Chairman, Deacons Ministry
"The Deacon's Ministry at Second Missionary Baptist Church has afforded me the opportunity to serve in a way I never imagined as a child growing up at Second. I have been taught, mentored and influenced by spiritually minded people in this ministry. From my pastor, other deacons and members involved in various ministries of the church, I have been blessed to be a student under their wings and as a teacher in the Sunday School ministry. I am mindful of the scripture in Philippians 1:6 which says, "Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ." God has used his people in molding and shaping me into what I am doing today in the church as the Chairman of the Deacon Board. It has and continues to be a fruitful journey, and I thank God for this ministry."
