Our mission is “to love God and reach people.” 1 Corinthian 13
We realize the pastor and staff cannot do this by themselves. Our purpose is to assist them in ministering to the needs of the church and community. Your Deacon is excited to be a part of the ministry of Stateland.
In the absence of the Pastor, it becomes the duty of the Deacons to conduct the devotional meetings, provide for the supply of the pulpit and administer the general affairs of the Church body. The Deacons are to work with the secular concerns of the Church along with the Trustees of the Church. They must act only in conjunction with the Pastor, not independent of him, except in very rare and urgent cases.
