GMSBC Deacon Nomination Process Is Open

Our Nominating Committee is requesting your assessment of the potential Deacon’s qualifications in our evaluation process. As a Deacon of Greater Mount Sinai Baptist Church, it is expected that all candidates meet the scriptural qualifications as listed in the Qualifications of a Deacon. 

Notice that unlike the average job description the primary emphasis in 1 Timothy 3:1-12 {NIV} is on who the individual is not on what the individual does. A Deacon’s function of serving as a minister of mercy is only as effective as their character permits. In this sense character is primary and function is secondary.

Note: Deacon Suggestions will be subject to willing participation, completion of the Deacon Candidate Application, successful completion of the Deacon Nomination Interview and recommendation process, and subject to Greater Mount Sinai Congregational Approval to proceed with the Deacon Training Curriculum and completion of the Ordination Process.
