    Deacon Family Ministry Title Image


    Welcome to the Bay Leaf Deacon web page. The primary role of the called and elected deacon is to serve. The word deacon in the Greek language is actually translated as serving or to serve. Here at Bay Leaf Baptist Church the deacons are assigned families to serve and care for. This is referred to as the Deacon Family Ministry. On this site you can see the elected deacons that will be serving Bay Leaf families this year.

    Though serving is the role of a deacon the qualifications required to serve are clearly stated in 1 Timothy 3:8-13 “In the same way, deacons are to be worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience. They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons. In the same way, the women are to be worthy of respect, not malicious talkers but temperate and trustworthy in everything. A deacon must be faithful to his wife and must manage his children and his household well. Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus.”

    Bay Leaf deacons should provide servant leadership by adhering to the Scripture and living lives of purity and integrity.
