Empowering through the Decon and Deconess Ministry…

 1 Timothy 3:13 makes it clear that ministering as a decon or deconess is a rewarding and honorable calling in the church.

 Decons and Deconess are servants first.

† The Decons and Deconess of NBWC are men and women who are assigned to assist the Pastor and members in spiritual matters of the church.
