Gethsemane Deaconess Ministry

Highlighting All the Vibrant Ministries at GMBC

The mission of the Deaconess Ministry is to meet the needs of the Gethsemane Missionary Baptist Church, under the spiritual guidance of the pastor and the deacons by promoting the spiritual growth in the church.

>1 Timothy 8:11 - "Even so must their wives be grave, not slanders, sober, faithful in all things."

The purpose of the Deaconess Ministry is to care for and assist the needs of the overall congregation. Wherever there are sick and shut-in members as well as members in need of prayer, the Deaconess Ministry will be there to help. They will be in contact with all sick members and monitor the prayer list to ensure that members are not alone. They are responsible for the preparation and setting up of the Lord's Supper on the first Sunday of each month. The Deaconess should instruct all female baptismal candidates as to what they should wear during the baptismal service.
