Deacon of The Month: Yukio Sakiyama
Olivet has active deacons who are available to help in a variety of ways. Each month, in case of emergency, prayer concern, or need, there is a deacon available 24 hours a day.
What is a Deacon?
Deacons serve the Lord by conducting the caring ministry of the church-doing the benevolence work, visiting the sick, being alert to the spiritual needs of the congregation-for the purposes of freeing the pastoral staff to focus on prayer and the ministry of the Word, promoting unity within the church, and facilitating the spread of the gospel.
When can I call a deacon?
Deacons are servants of the Lord, and you can reach out to them at anytime. Each month, Olivet has a designated deacon on call who can be reached at anytime, day or night. However, other deacons are also available when needed.
