Called to Serve
At Sunnybrook, our Deacon Ministry includes our active Deacons.  Our Deacons are to be the spiritual men of the church and the spiritual leader of their home, loving the Lord, loving the church, being redemptive, forgiving, showing a great deal of patience, kindness, goodwill and at all times friendly with all who enter the church as a citizen, newcomer and visitor.

Sunnybrook follows the scriptures from 1 Timothy 3:2-7 that say:  Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness,not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect. If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church? He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap.
