Our Deacons

The work of deacons is best done by men and women who are gifted with compassion and empathy.  The office of deacon, as set forth in Scripture, is one of sympathy, witness, and service, after the example of Jesus Christ.

Ministering to those who are in need, to the sick, to the lonely and to anyone who may be in distress both within the Crossroads community and beyond is the primary focus of deacons.

At Crossroads, each deacon is assigned families within a geographical zone and are encouraged to be in relationship with them on a regular and frequent basis.
