The Diaconate Ministry of Pilgrim Baptist Church is comprised of both the Deacon's Ministry and the Deacon's Wives Ministry. The members of these Ministries are appointed and assist the Pastor in whatever capacity deemed necessary. They also assist in baptism and communion as well as visiting the sick and shut-in.
The Deacon's Ministry also renders spiritual service to all members.
These men study the scriptures in preparation to encourage, guide, instruct, inspire, and direct their fellow brothers and sisters.
The Deacon's Wives Ministry assist the Deacon's Ministry in whatever capacity deemed necessary. The ladies maintain the "Five-C's": Christ-Like, Consecrated, Chaste, Charming, and Charitable. They also assist the Pastor in developing the spiritual life of the women and girls of the church.
