The Deaconate Body of Sharpstown Baptist Church, Houston, Texas is dedicated and devoted to serving the Lord Jesus Christ. The body assists and supports the pastor in caring and leading the members of Sharpstown Baptist Church. The deaconate is involved in the spiritual wellbeing of the church and its members. Active deacons and Emeritus deacons serve our church in several areas. The areas include Sunday Morning Prayer with the Pastor, Sunday Morning Patrols around the church campus, weekly on-call duty, the observance of the Lord’s Supper, rendering help for Baptism, and vacation Bible school. The body of deacons goes on a retreat annually with the church ministers to pray, brain storm on ideas to move forward, and fellowship with each other. The retreat provides us a refreshing spirit for the coming year.
