Sixty-five deacons are ordained to minister to the congregation of St. Andrew's. They are trained to visit in the hospitals, care-facilities and homes offering prayer, spiritual encouragement and comfort. Deacons stand ready to assist families in times of crisis and be prayer intercessors on behalf of the congregation. This is the biblical ministry the church is called to be and do.
Because of the privacy laws, we need you to please let us know when you are scheduled to be in the hospital and would llike a deacon to come and minister to you with prayer. Contact Leah Stout, 949.574.2259, if you desire a visit from your deacon.
Deacons meet monthly for training, fellowship, attending to deacon matters and prayer on behalf of the congregation.
