|Deacon Willie Brown, Chairman of Deacon Ministry|
The term "Deacon" comes from the same word as "minister", which means to be a voluntary attendant to another. Our purpose is to attend to specific needs and serve the body of Mt. Enon Baptist Church, freeing our Pastor to preach and teach the Word of God, as modeled in Acts 6: 1-4. Mt. Enon's deacons are highly visible and significant spiritual leaders and church officers. As such, they play an active role in several ministries throughout the church.
