Ministry Description

The role of the deacon of the church is to assist the church in any way possible. The deacon, like the elder, is an elected and ordained role.

The deacon’s primary roles are the assistance in running of services, the visitation of members, the care of the sick and the maintenance of church property. The deacons are also intimately involved in:

  • Evangelism
  • Ministry
  • Healing
  • Praying for the Sick
  • Assisting the Poor and the Needy
  • Meaningful Community Impact
  • Men’s Ministries
  • and much more!


To perpetuate our duty as a source of strength and support to the members of the Capitol Hill Church and to mentor young men into becoming responsible, contributing members of the church and society.


I Timothy 3: 8-13: “Deacons, likewise, are to be men worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear consience. They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons. In the same way, their wives are to be women worthy of respect, not malicious talkers but temperate and trustworthy in everything. A deacon must be the husband of one wife and must manage his children and his household well. Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus.”
