God has called his people to love one another by meeting basic human needs. What’s more he has specially gifted some members to lead the church in fulfilling this biblical mandate. The Deacons lead the congregation in demonstrating acts of mercy, justice and compassion to the family of believers, strangers and prisoners, the fatherless, widows, immigrants and refugees, enemies, and our neighbors in need.
Deacons are called by God to act with compassion toward those in need of physical and spiritual help. This help is to be given first to members at New City Fellowship South City and also to others as we have available resources (Gal. 6:10). We exercise our gift of mercy through direct involvement with individuals, ministry team leaders and community groups. We believe God has called us into a relationship with Himself and with one another as we walk together in the gospel of the kingdom. Through these relationships we provide both financial education and assistance.
