The Deacons are a group of people who care for and shepherd the people of First Baptist Ashland. The deacons do much of the heavy lifting of caring for those who are sick, in the hospital, who’ve experienced a death in the family or who have brought new life into their homes. The deacons reach out with meals, phone calls, cards, administrative and coordinating help for events. They do this through traditional Deacon Family Ministry as well as the Deacon Team Ministry approach. They are responsible for serving alongside the Pastoral staff during communion.
