The Deacon Ministry maintains the currency of the membership through services, spiritual nurturing, systematic visitations, benevolent and bereavement support, and support of the Pastor’s vision.  They administer communion at first Sunday services and upon request to home-bound members. The deacons oversee baptisms and right hand of fellowship to new members. Most importantly, through a Deacon Family Ministry Plan, each Greater Zion member is assigned a team of deacons who are available to assist you in times of sickness or bereavement and to have prayer with you in times of trials and tribulation. In order to assist you, please contact your deacons should a crisis occurs. Also, please provide your deacons with current contact information (new address, telephone number, etc.) whenever there is an update.
