The Deaconess Ministry

"I commend to you Phoebe our sister, who is a servant of the church in Cenchrea, that you may receive her in the Lord in a manner worthy of the saints, and assist her in whatever business she has need of you; for indeed she has been a helper of many and of myself also."
Romans 16:1-2

The Mission of the Deaconess Ministry

- is to assist the Pastor by working with the Deacons in ministering to the needs of the overall congregation - specifically to women, children, elderly, and those in distress - with loving kindness and sympathy.

We, as part of the Faith Missionary Baptist Church community, are focused on our commitment to serving God, and all mankind, as the Holy Spirit directs.


  • To minister to females, children, and those in distress.
  • To visit and commune the sick and help as needed.
  • To prepare female candidates for baptism.
  • To participate in church ministries.
  • To diligently study God’s Word.

At FMBC, we are so very grateful for the many years of service from our deaconesses; many of them have been on the Lord's battle field for a mighty long time and are still working, worshipping, giving and being about the Lord's business.
