Deaconess Ministry


The Deaconess Ministry, a board primarily made up of deacons’ wives, widows and other appointed women, is a support group for Pastor Lee, deacons and the church at large. Some of the responsibilities of the deaconesses are: assisting in stimulating and nurturing the spiritual growth of the congregation, teaching and developing the younger women of the church, communing and ministering to the sick and shut-in monthly, assisting the pastor with baptism candidates, maintaining baptism and communion supplies and leading cooperate praise and worship with the deacons.

In addition, the Deaconess Ministry is a co-sponsor of the Family Plan, a pilot program at Shiloh designed to structure a systematic method of assigning a deacon/deaconess team to a cluster of families to keep in touch with. As a result of the Family Plan, the deaconesses hope to help families bring unsaved family members to Christ, provide families with a support group in dealing with crises and offer a caring atmosphere that will strengthen the entire congregation.

On the Saturday before the first Sunday of each month, the deaconesses meet to conduct mini-workshops to train and facilitate spiritual growth and development within the deaconess board.

The deaconess board is a co-sponsor of the annual church leadership picnic and leadership worship celebration on the fourth Saturday and fourth Sunday in June of each year.
