Who We Are

In Acts 6 we read how the early church recognized the great urgency to care for the poor, ill and needy, and that such a ministry went beyond the disciples’ leadership as teachers of the Word. Those disciples chose “seven men of good report, full of the Spirit and of wisdom…” who became the first Deacons. As Deacons at John Knox we continue in that long and important responsibility.

The JKPC Board of Deacons compassionately serves many immediate financial and physical needs of our congregation and our community through several “sub-team” ministries. We welcome volunteer help from anyone at JKPC as well as past Deacons. If you have a heart or gifts for helping in any of these ministries, please contact the deacons at needadeacon@jkpcusa.org
