Deacon Tim Graves assists the Pastor. Some Church's have Elders, this Church does not. Yes, we do have a Church Council that runs the "business" side of the Church. Please note, Deacon's at Faith do not preach or consecrate the elements of the Eucharist. They assist in so many other ways. This is good, this is Biblical.
