Deacons’ Ministry

Chair: Deacon Timothy Dixon

The Hutchinson Missionary Baptist Church Deacons’ Ministry is to assist the pastor in providing spiritual care and leadership to HMBC members and its community, including but not limited to visiting, nourishing, equipping, and counseling church members and its visitors. HMBC Deacons are ordained for Deacon service as outlined in Acts 6:3 (KJV) “Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business,” and I Timothy 3:8-12 (KJV) “8Likewise must the deacons be grave, not double-tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; 9Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience. 10 And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless. 11Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things. 12Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.”
