Praise God Fellow Servants,We continue to thank our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for the South Carolina Baptist Deacons Association formed in May 2014. Also, we praise God for another opportunity to be of service as deacon servants!
The purposes for the SC Baptist Deacons Association are assisting pastors in advancing the general interest of the church, developing a closer relationship among deacons and members, providing on-going learning through training/fellowship, and becoming more involved in local and foreign mission.
We held our first annual one-day fellowship on Saturday, September 27, 2014, at the Lovely Hill Baptist Association Conference Center in St. George, SC. God blessed us mightily with a spirit-filled gathering. Many of you responded with your presence and support! It was very clear you expected more of the same.
Our second annual weekend fellowship was on Friday, February 20 and Saturday, February 21, 2015, at Ridgewood Missionary Baptist Church in Columbia, SC. Pastor Fred Coit and church family extended welcoming arms to us.
We welcome your local deacon union, church deacon ministry, and individual deacons/deaconesses to join the SC Baptist Deacons Association. Here is what you need to know about our membership fees:
- Local deacons union - $100 annually
- Individual church - $50 annually
- Individuals - $5
You may contact your local deacon’s union president for more information. In addition, our association website will provide additional information.
We look forward to blessed relationships with all of you as we move to share our ministry across South Carolina. Please help spread the good news that deacon servants are persevering to reap the divine reward.
