DEACON MINISTRIES

 

 

 

Deacon Ministries are run by the Deacons of the church, who are nominated and chosen to serve three-year terms. They provide vital services to church members and our community. Deacon ministries are always in need of volunteers. VPC has over a dozen Deacon teams, learn more about them online: vpc.church/deacons David Turner: 480-991-6424 x121,
