The Deacon Ministry at Upper Zion Baptist Church can be summarized in one word, SERVICE. Our main priority is follow the Biblical mandate to take care of the widows & orphans in our church community. The purpose of the Deacons of Upper Zion Baptist Church is to actively seek the guidance and direction of the Holy Spirit in all areas of life and ministry and assist in leading the Upper Zion Baptist Church to be a healthy, Spirit-led, New Testament Church. We do not guide our Pastor in what to preach. We endeavor to serve as spiritual leaders by encouraging members in their walk with God. We do not govern the church, but our goal is to assist the Pastor by meeting the spiritual needs of the congregation and empowering members to continue in faithful service to God and one another.
