Deacons & Deaconess


Mission Statement:

It is our responsibility to attend to the needs of the members of the church, as it relates to the spiritual and the temporal needs that may arise. As Deacons, we are an extension of the Pastor. We minister to the congregation as his representatives in matters that will further the growth of the individual member and the corporate body. We are passionate about developing a more Christ-like congregation and are committed to the standard of ministry proclaimed by the written and preached Word of God.

Vision Statement:

Serving as extended arms of the Ministry of the Pastor.


The Hopewell Deaconess duties include assisting with church ordinances, supporting the clergy, ministering to the needy and educating female church members. While deaconesses are sometimes ordained, they’re typically considered part of the lay ministry.
