About Our Deacons/Deaconesses

The Overseers rely heavily on Deacons & Deaconesses for the week-to-week operation of the Church and its programs.
Deacons are men who meet the qualifications of 1 Timothy 3:8-13 and are committed to serving the Church. Deaconesses are women who meet the same qualifications and are committed to the same task.

Rather than having a single Board of Deacons and Deaconesses, at WGC we have a growing number of groups and committees of Deacons and Deaconesses. Here is the current list:

– Finance Deacons

– Building Deacons

– Women’s Ministries Committee

– Sunday School Committee

– AWANA Leadership Team

– Youth Leadership Team

– Missions Committee

– Library Committee

– Music & Worship Committee

The Overseers meet with the Finance Deacons, which includes the Church’s treasurer, once a month in order to receive a financial report and make financial decisions.

Individual Overseers act as liaisons to the other groups and committees. The Overseers meet with these groups and committees as the need arises for discussion, planning and prayer.
