FHBC's Deacon Ministry is an extension of the church's pastoral ministry and is performed by spirit-filled men who are called to exemplify the love of God by praying, serving, and encouraging all people to grow into the likeness of Jesus Christ in a spirit of unity and peace.


Deacons shall be men who meet the Biblical qualifications for deacon as set forth in Acts 6 and 1 Timothy 3, have been members of the church for at least one year, and are at least twenty-five years of age on January 1 immediately preceding their election.
