Consider joining our deacon ministry at The Journey South County! Deacons are biblically qualified Christians (1 Timothy 3:8-12) who are called, trained, and commissioned. We lead the church by serving and lead others into service. As ordained officers of the church, we support the ministry of the elders and pastors here at South County. We primarily serve our South County members and regular attenders but can help others who are brought to our attention. To learn more about serving as a deacon, contact Jason, one of our elders, or one of us! We would love to have you join this ministry.
