The Student Board of Deacons welcomes you!
The Deacons’ scope of concerns includes the emotional and spiritual well-being of students and their families. They seek to foster fellowship, provide opportunities for community building, and offer recognition, prayer support, and comfort regarding joys and concerns of members of the community. The Deacons fulfill these responsibilities in cooperation with the Resident Assistant and Student Council. Biblical inspiration for having Deacons is rooted in Acts 6:1-7.
What we do:
The McCormick student body is divided into smaller groups of students, each with an assigned deacon, for the purpose of coordinating intentional emotional and spiritual student care from a student perspective.
Students can approach a deacon for:
- Nurture, growth, fellowship, and connectedness among students and their families.
- Recognition, support, and comfort regarding joys and concerns of members of the community.
- Prayer concerns.
- Financial support in times of crisis for emergency travel expenses or sudden illness.
- Celebration of family milestones and support in difficult times
