First Baptist Church of Clayton, NC

About Team Ministry at First Baptist Church of Clayton

The 24-member Deacon Ministry at First Baptist Church is made up of both men and women of God. The role of the deacon is that of spiritual leadership through service to God, the church body, and the lost.

The Deacon Ministry plays a very important role in guiding and helping church members through difficult times, especially when there is sickness or death. The Deacons also serve and lead Ministry Teams that include lay people within the church.
