The Deacons of Memorial Baptist Church are ordained in accordance with direction found in the Bible, God’s Holy Word.
At Memorial, the deacons exist to serve the needs of the church and support the pastor. They are not a governing body and have no authority except that found in the scriptures. They promote spiritual leadership and vitality. Deacons are selected by the Deacon Selection Committee and approved by the church.
The office of Deacon is an honor and deacons serve without compensation. They strive to be Godly men who actively invest their lives in the highest calling for laity —spiritual leader, servant, prayer warrior— deacon.
