The deacon ministry at North Ridge Life is vital to the spiritual well being of the church. As instituted in Acts 6:1-7, the deacons serve the practical daily needs of the body of Christ. Our deacons have met the qualifications revealed in 1 Timothy 3:8-13 and have been ordained by the laying on of the hands of the elders in prayer.
