Deacons of Hope

The Deacon Board is the core Leadership Team of Hope Community Church.  We exist to encourage believers in their relationship with Jesus Christ, to equip them to stand firm in the storms of life and to empower them to use their God-given gifts in the church and the world for the good of His kingdom.

In other words, our ministry is to give ministry away – to serve the community of faith by equipping others to serve.  And of course, our hope is that over time we can lead the church into full maturity – to truly become the body of Christ, a sacramental and redemptive picture of Jesus to the world around us.

The details of our responsibility can be seen in our constitution.  [You may obtain a copy of our Constitution and By-Laws by clicking here.]  The Deacon Board meets at least twice a month, generally on the first and third Tuesday evenings.  [The schedule is printed in the bulletin.]  Any Hope member is welcome to attend – we simply ask that you contact the current chairperson before the meeting to confirm the location and time and make us aware that you are coming.  The minutes from all meetings [including our Family Matters business meetings] are located in the Administrative Assistant’s office for review by members at any time.

If you would like to contact us – and especially if you would like us to visit you for encouragement, counsel or prayer – please do so at 313.823.8002 or at Also, we try to be available after each worship service and our phone numbers are located in the bulletin each week.

We want to serve.  How can we serve you better?

With the blessing of Jesus Christ,

Rita Beale, Joel Beckett, Audrey Brennan, J. Kevin Butcher, Jim Derbin, Pete Farago, Jim Kastner, Brian Koehn, Pam Pangborn, and Alberta VanDiver
