Deacon Ministry (Tribal Leaders) The Mission of the Deacons at Sandy Run is to be a leader in his home and in the church. He has a heart to serve and is honored and is blessed to serve in the humility of servanthood following the perfect example of Christ as he walked the earth. Deacons support the Pastor in the Baptism Service and Communion Service. To better communicate and coordinate Christian love and fellowship, we have divided our membership into Tribal Groups. Each Tribal Group corresponds to one of the names of the 12 Tribes of Judah and led by an assigned Tribal Leader who is a Deacon of SRMBC. This Tribal Leader is responsible for the members of his Tribal Group. The first Sunday of each month, the Tribal Leader and his Tribal Group lead the congregation in praise and worship. Each Tribal Group wears a different colored t-shirt that identify them with a Tribal Leader. The purpose of this initiative is to help foster fellowship and Christian community in the church.
