Trinity elected to establish a Board of Deacons early in its history. “The ministry of deacon as set forth in scripture is one of compassion, witness, and service, sharing the redeeming love of Jesus Christ for the poor, the hungry, the sick, the lost, the friendless the oppressed, those burdened by unjust policies or structures, or anyone in distress.” (Book of Church Order 2017) Our deacons are commissioned officers of the church and serve under the authority of the session.
Trinity’s deacons are normally elected for a three-year term into one of three classes of seven deacons each (i.e. 2017, 2018, 2019). Each deacon is responsible to administer to an individual flock of church members as assigned during this three-year term. Each flocks may consist of 20 – 25 church members. The Board of Deacons manages its funds separately from Trinity, and distributes benefits as authorized for the organization, subject to financial review. The board meets on the fourth Monday of each month at 6:00pm, and is lead by a moderator.
