McCarthy Deacon Ministry

Welcome New Deacons!

 New Deacons June 2015

On Sunday, June 14, 2015, we ordained four men to the deacon ministry at McCarthy Baptist Church:  James Feuerbacher, Rick Payne, Zeb Auxier, and Terry Owens (along with transitional pastor David Noble).  We're excited to see these men respond to God's call in their lives.  We look forward to how God will use them to build up the Body of Christ at McCarthy Baptist Church!
