Diaconate

The deacons support the pastoral staff in ministering to members who are ill, homebound or in need. They are nominated and elected by the Westminster congregation from within our membership and serve three-year terms. The Board of Deacons is composed of 30 deacons who work with Pastoral Care Coordinator Eileen Jinks.

Pastoral care provides Christian support to members of our congregation who are ill, grieving, or facing other life crises, as well as those who may no longer be physically able to attend church regularly or participate actively in church activities. Deacon duties include home visitation, flower delivery, extended communion delivery, meals team, support for the Sunday bus, and special transportation requests, among others.
