The Ministers Coalition’s ( a compilation of Ordained and Licensed Ministers) goal is to assist the Pastor with fulfilling the vision for the church which is reaching the unsaved and those who have fallen away. The coalition strives to edify the Body of Christ by actively participating in opportunities for ministerial development, community service, and Evangelism.
It is highly recognized that the ministerial role of support is vital when dealing with all aspects and context of ministry. It is the intent of this ministry to expand their presence and assignments as they engage with the church community and beyond.
To date, the Ministers’ Coalition is very active with the following; Bayside of Poquoson, Northampton Rehabilitation and James River Convalescent Centers, Freedom Outreach Center(homeless), providing AfterCare to the bereaved through Hope and Healing, Children’s Church, church School and bible study.
The coalition will continue to support and perform all pastoral duties as assigned by the Pastor. This includes serving as worship leaders, teaching, preaching , and prayer and intercession for the Body of Christ. As the coalition embark on becoming transformed it is crucial that the team embody, embrace, and extend their support with genuine love and concern for all those who will be impacted.
As the coalition utilizes the tenets of the transformational church the ministers will depend on implementing prayerful dependence, relational intentionality, building a shared sense of community and ceasing the opportunity to embrace a missionary mentality. The Ministers Coalition will seize the opportunity to share Christ.

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who is highly praised and worshipped at Ebenezer Baptist Church. We, the Board of Deacons at Ebenezer, invite you, your family and friends to attend our church where we praise, sing, teach, and worship in the name of Jesus.
At Ebenezer, our Diaconate consists of the Board of Deacons and Deaconesses who, in partnership with our pastor and clergy, act as servants to the membership of the church and to the community.
One way we serve and reach out to our membership is through the Family Ministry. Each family is assigned a deacon who, in turn, is directly responsible to minister to that family both morally and spiritually. This may be achieved by, but is not limited to, personal visits, coordinating, praying, directing, recognizing special events, telephone calls, caring, and through reconciliation.
The main purpose of such interactions is to build a stronger relationship with God; to proclaim the gospel to believers and unbelievers, and to care for the membership and others in the community. Our goal is to lead the church to the achievement of its mission of saving souls.
It is our prayer that you join us for any of our services and we solicit your prayers and support to become a servant to you and your family.
Our Deaconesses, along with the deacons, have jurisdiction over the preparation and serving of the Holy Communion. Under supervision of the pastor and the deacons, prepare linen, secure bread and wine, and prepare the table on each Holy Communion Sunday before worship begins; keep same clean and presentable. The deaconesses have charge of the baptismal robes and assist in the baptismal services. They, along with the deacons, submit the names of candidates for baptismal certificates to the church administrative office.
The deaconesses are responsible for visiting and caring for the sick and shut-in members of the congregation, along with deacons and other church members. They minister to the spiritual growth and needs of other female members of the congregation in general. Our deaconesses also assist in the Deacon Family Ministry.
The Culinary Ministry is a creative and innovative ministry designed to serve God and others through food preparation. This ministry encompasses everything from creating menus to food preparation and decorations for church repasts for special programs/events. If you enjoy serving others in a fast paced, oriented environment, then our ministry needs YOU.

The Ministry stands on-call for Pastor and his wife to provide assistance and care directly to them as needed and/or to respond to any request they have for direct assistance or for providing assistance to others. The Ministry serves as an extension of Pastor and his wife in acknowledgment of bereaved members. Facilitation of church-wide acknowledgements of the years of service that Pastor and his wife have yielded themselves to Ebenezer Baptist Church are led by the ministry as well.
