The Deacon Ministry at Forest Baptist Church is organized around two goals: serving the Lord and His church.  With Acts 6:1-6 as our model, each deacon has a specific area of service which he oversees in a tangible, hands-on way. The deacons recruit and organize volunteers, from the membership, to accomplish their ministry objectives. The deacons serve on a rotation basis.
