Deacons
At HP Pres

What is the Deacon Ministry?

The HP Pres Deacon Ministry serves the individual needs of our members. Our deacons are ordained leaders of our church who minister to our members in Christ-centered ways. They serve a four-year term and are organized into deacon-led service teams that specialize in ministering to different needs, such as supporting those dealing with grief and loss or celebrating births.

Angel Food and Driver Team

Angel Food and Driver Team

This Team serves members who are celebrating a birth, grieving a death, or have just been released from the hospital. Angel Food Ministry weekly prepares home-cooked meals. The group meets to assemble and pray over the meals, and deliver to the recipient’s homes.  This Deacon led team is also supported by reserve deacons as well as dedicated Covenant Partners.
