Mothers, Deaconesses, Board & Ministers Wives Council


The Church Mothers:

The church mother board" or "Church mothers" are comprised of older women in the congregation, who have been saved for many years and are able to impart wisdom and prayers to the younger generation. This tradition is based on 1 Timothy 5:1-2 says, "Do not rebuke an older man, but appeal to him as a father. Treat younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters with complete purity."

 


The Deaconesses

Deaconesses are the spiritual women of the church full of the Holy Ghost, who are willing to lend their wisdom and experiences in the roles of; discipleship, prayer, counselors and mentors. Their lives in their homes, church and community will exemplify the characteristics set forth in Titus 2:5; discreet, chaste, keepers at home, excellent, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
