The Deacons of First Baptist Church

Last Wednesday night in its Congregational Meeting First Baptist Church elected fifteen new deacons to begin serving a two year term.

These are the new deacons: Cliff Anglin, Kim Carver, Jim Cook, Tim Crabtree, Adam Hankins, Johnathan Hills, Rock Kendrick, Steve Mikell, Tommy Milazzo, Dale Padgett, Steele Rolston, Dwayne Schaefer, Tom Stogner, Mark Thompson, Charlie Vandercook. These deacons will serve on the active deacon body for the 2019-2020 calendar years.

These newly elected deacons will join the deacons previously serving. The following deacons will continue serving through the end of 2019: Jim Bishop, Mike Blossman, Ed Buckley, Mike Fairburn, Matthew Johnston, Adam Martin, Mike Martin, Larry McKinney, Rhett Rush, Todd Snure, Steve Soileau, Jeremy Windom.

At FBC, deacons help the pastors of the church lead in ministry. They visit hospitals, welcome new attenders, and minister in times of crisis.

At next year’s election, fifteen additional men will be elected to bring the total number to 30. The deacons asked for the increase to better minister to a growing church body.

All ordained men are invited to the deacon ordination council for Tim Crabtree and Tommy Milazzo Tuesday, December 4 at 6:00 PM in W412.

Tim Crabtree and Tommy Milazzo will be ordained (set apart for this ministry by prayer) in the worship services January 5 & 6, 2019.

Please join me in praying for all those who serve the church in this way.
