Chair, Diaconate Ministry


Deacon Neville Wallace
is the Chairman of the Diaconate Ministry. The ministry consists of both male and female members.  The Diaconate Ministry, along with the Trustee Ministry are the two main governing bodies of the church; the Diaconate being the spiritual component of the two is the liaison between the members and the Pastor.  The concept of deacon comes from the Greek word “diakonos” which means "servant."  It can be used unofficially of anyone serving the church, or used in its official sense of the office of Deacon.

Some of the responsibilities of the Diaconate Ministry include:

- To lead the church in the achievement of the Pastor's vision;
- To care for church members and others in the community;
- To visit the sick, needy and bereaved family of the church;
- To assist in presenting the ordinances of the Lord's Supper and Baptism;
