Deacon Tribes

In the Tribes the Deacon is the spiritual leader. The Deacon has a team that assist him in supporting the Senior Pastor’s God given vision. Similar to the small church, the tribe provides personal attention to God’s people. The Deacon, and associate minister walk side by side with congregants as they take their new member’s classes in preparation for baptism and receiving the right hand of fellowship.

The Tribe is here to nurture, comfort and be available to the children of God whom the Lord has so lovingly entrusted to our care. Tribes enable us to make a large church seem small. The Tribe provides help, healing, information and inspiration to all members of the congregation as charged in Acts 20:28.


Each Biblical House consist of congregants at your location, a Deacon and an Associate Minister.


To provide lay leadership to oversee and manage the needs of the congregation, by segmenting the large church into several small Tribes.
