Covenant deacons ensure that members of our church family receive the care, support and encouragement needed for facing life’s challenges. a deacon, as defined in scripture, is a person of sympathy, witness and service in the example of Jesus Christ. Deacons minister to those in need, to the sick, to the friendless and to anyone who may be in distress, both within and beyond the community of faith. Deacons provide congregational care to enable people to continue to grow in Christ and to reach out with Christ’s love in Austin and around the world.
