Embracing Servant Leadership Diaconate Ministry
The Diaconates ensures that pastor is informed and that prayer requests are submitted to the administrative assistant, as approved by BBC member. Our diaconate ministry is committed to the ministry, assigned to their heart and hands, and they are available to visit those who are sick or are in crisis, and to facilitate others needs. As we continue to grow, it is vitally important that the congregation embrace the servant leadership of the diaconate ministry.

Our diaconates ministry continues to express the love of God by providing congregational care. We encourage BBC members to contact their Diaconates at time of crisis (sickness, loss, family emergency).
Diaconate Amon Gardner
Psalms 133:1-3 KJV Favorite bible verse: Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; as the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.
Diaconate Carolyn McGill
Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV Favorite bible verse: Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Diaconate Craig Harrison
Favorite bible verse: Romans 5:1-5 (KJV) Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

Favorite bible verse: Philippians 4:13 KJV I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.
Diaconate Herbert McGill
My Favorite Scripture: Romans 12:1-3 KJV I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
Diaconate Marshell Swann - Chairperson
Favorite bible verse Hebrews 13:16 NIV And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
Diaconate Mildred J McClenny - Emeritus
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NLT Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
