The Deacon Community Empowerment Team seeks out members of the congregation who want to educate themselves about poverty and cultural differences and find ways to minister to those in poverty.

The team believes Christ is calling us to learn more about our brothers and sisters in poverty so that we can minister to them at their points of greatest need. 

In order to educate one another, the team identifies materials to read and study, participates in group discussions about poverty and cultural differences and seeks out activities to engage and build relationships.
