What is a Deacon?
The goal of our Deacons Ministry is to facilitate a family quality among our widely dispersed congregation through a ministry of sympathy, witness, and caregiving. Deacons are trained to care for families in their neighborhood offering fellowship, prayer support, hospital visits, and needs for those in financial crisis. In addition, Deacons offer many ways in which members of Bel Air Church can meet their neighbors, build community, care for one another, and joining before the Lord’s Table for communion.
Deacon neighborhoods are designed to give church members in the same residential area an opportunity to meet in a casual setting for fellowship, information and group activities. They also serve a vital role in providing for the needs of those who are sick, lonely, or in need of emergency financial resources.
Bel Air Church divides its members into neighborhoods, which are grouped according to zip codes. There are a total of 8 neighborhoods which covers most of Los Angeles county running from the Santa Clarita and Simi Valleys to the north, through the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valley, the Westside, across the basin and down into the South Bay.
