As deacons, we come alongside those in need, assisting with physical needs, such as help with financial issues, counseling, food/meals, transportation, and many other areas. We provide spiritual support in the process. The first step to being a deacon at The Journey South County is nomination to the elders. One can nominate him/herself or a church member can nominate another member. The process for becoming a deacon includes self-assessment, elder review, training, and working alongside other deacons. After a successful process, the candidate will be installed as a deacon. If you feel called to the deacon ministry or you know of a member who has a heart for service, please let one of our elders know. If you know of someone who is currently in need of assistance from the deacons, please contact one of the deacons. SEND US A NOMINATION UPCOMING EVENTS & NEWS One of our church community groups is proud to partner with the Kurt Warner First Things First Foundation and Operation Food Search for the 18th Annual Warners’ Warm-up Coat Drive by serving as a drop-off location for new and gently used coats of all sizes. The drive will take place from November 1-14. We encourage everyone to donate and help us spread the word by telling your family, friends, and neighbors. You can drop off coats at The Journey South County THIS Sunday, November 4.
