Vision: To be exemplary female servant leaders who minister to the needs of the congregation and community; give Christian care during a crisis and partner with and support Central Baptist Church ministries in workshops, activities, mission projects and fellowships.
 
Purpose: Specifically, the deaconess purchase and maintain all communion and baptismal supplies, prepare for –set-up pulpit and communion table— and assist the deacons in serving the Lord’s Supper. We assist female candidates for baptism; we maintain the baptismal pool by purchasing inventory and ensure the cleaning of the baptismal clothing as needed. We also assist in counseling and evangelizing new converts; minister to the congregation and to the sick and bereaved. We are spiritual caregivers within the body of Christ and throughout the community.
