Deacons

The office of deacon has its roots in the early church. The word deacon comes from the Greek word diakonos which means servant. literally diakonos means "through the dust" (dia = "through" and konos = "dust"), implying the active work of ministry that would make one's feet or hands dusty as they move about. Deacons play an active, servant-leadership role at Calvary.

At CBC, deacons are lay people elected by the congregation to a) perform duties in service of specific ministry areas within Calvary, and b) provide collective leadership on the Ministry Advisory Board and/or Executive Board.
