Deacons Commission

Purpose

The Deacons Commission focuses on the welfare of the churches within the MWC communion, particularly in times of duress, and offers listening, prayer, encouragement and support to churches feeling the need for brothers and sisters to “walk with them” in their particular need.  The commission promotes the attitude and practice of service among member churches by means of visits, teaching and materials.
