Deacons are ordained laypersons and members of Olivet elected by the congregation to a ministry for caring for those in need in the church. Deacons are spiritual leaders of the church who pray for others, visit the sick, support those who have lost loved ones and assume other duties, like assisting with Communion. They are known for their love for Jesus and their compassion for others.
The Bible teaches that the Harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. Olivet is blessed to have so many willing servants who play a vital role in the ministries and outreach of the church activities.
