The Deacon Ministry at First Baptist Chickamauga is a group of spiritually mature men built around the word serve. Our main goal of being Deacons is to follow the Biblical mandates set out in 1 Timothy and Titus. We do not guide our pastor on what to preach, pick out colors for the walls, or govern the church. We serve.
To be a Deacon at First Baptist Chickamauga you must be at least 21 years old, be a member of the church for at least a year, and meet the Biblical mandates laid out in 1 Timothy and Titus. The Deacons at First Baptist serve a three year term, and will roll off and become inactive for a year after their term is up.
