The mission of the Deaconess Ministry is to meet the needs of the St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church members, under the spiritual guidance of its Pastor and the Deacons by promoting the spiritual growth in the church.

The purpose of the Deaconess Ministry is to care for and assist the needs of the overall congregation. Wherever there are sick and shut-in members as well as members in need of prayer, the Deaconess Ministry will be there to help. They will be in contact with all sick members and monitor the prayer list to ensure that members are not alone. They are responsible for the preparation and setting up of Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month. The Deaconess should instruct all female baptismal candidates as to what they are suppose to wear.

1 Timothy 8:11 - "Even so must their wives be grave, not slanders, sober, faithful in all things."
