As described in Acts chapter 6, deacons are servant leaders of the church body, who fulfil a role of a caring ministry to free the pastorial staff to focus on prayer and study, the ministry of the Bible, and facilitating the spread of the gospel.  Deacons are responsible for benevolence work, visiting the sick and needy, being alert to the spiritual and physical needs of the congregation, and helping to oversee conflict resolution.

Our deacons at Timber Ridge Baptist are elected for a term of three years, and each year some end their term and more are voted upon to serve by the church body.

The current active deacons are:

Terry Fifer, chairman

Rick Perkins

Randy Sexton

William Stanley

T.J. Waicul
