Little Union Baptist Church Boards

The official Boards of the Little Union Baptist church consists of the Deacon Board, the Deaconess Board, the Trustee Board, and the Joint Board. A description of each Board follows:

  • deacon Board

    Our purpose is to be servants of God responsible for assisting the Pastor in serving the spiritual and temporal needs of the Church. The steps of Little Union Deacons are ordered by the Lord through several scriptures including, 1 Timothy 3:1-12 and Titus 2:1. We support and assist in carrying out the Pastor's vision for the Church.

  • Deaconess Board

    As consecrated officers of the church, our purpose is to be gracious, humble and courteous, Christian servants who assist the Pastor and Deacons in meeting the spiritual and practical needs of the members of the Little Union as commissioned by Jesus Christ in accordance with 1 Timothy 3:8-11 and Titus 2:3-4.  

  • Trustee Board

    Our purpose is to manage the temporal affairs of the Little Union Baptist Church in accordance with the Church constitution and Bylaws.  Simply stated, trustees are persons of God who are entrusted by the Church to manage the secular affairs of the Church.  As people of God, we often look to Scriptures to seek guidance in establishing procedures for electing Trustees.  The word Trustee does not appear in the Bible in the context we use it today, except where we are all reminded of the fact we are Stewards of all that God has given us.   Jesus Christ in 1 Timothy 3:8-11 and Titus 2:34.

  • joint board

    In accordance with the word of God, the Church Constitution and Bylaws and the Church Covenant, the Joint Board shall be responsible for the administration of and when necessary, the intercessions of all Church spiritual or temporal matters in the best interest of the Church.  In the event a decision representing the best interest of the Church requires immediate attention, a called Joint Board meeting will be assembled.  Any decision must be approved by a majority vote of the Joint Board members in attendance at the called meeting.  In emergency situations only, when a Joint Board meeting cannot occur, the Chairman of the Deacon Board, the Chairman of the Trustees, and the President of the Deaconess Board are authorized to make decisions.  Any decision must be approved by a majority vote of the three members as identified in this paragraph.
