The word 'deacon' is most accurately translated as 'servant.' Our Diaconate is composed of nearly 90 men and women who are dedicated to prayerfully serving the Pastorate and Congregation of First Baptist. Their service is visible in many aspects of the church -- from conducting hospital and homebound visits, to administering the Lord's Supper, and providing the offertory prayer each Sunday.
Current Diaconate Leadership:
Joe Murray -- Diaconate Chairman, 2017
Tony Reynozo -- Diaconate Vice Chairman, 2017
Tony accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior in the summer of 1988 after being loved in spite of his antics by Irvin James Polk for a number of years. After his wandering through the wilderness, he found his bachelorhood ending in the eyes of his beloved bride, Betsey (Dugdale) Reynozo on 29 August 1996. They have some how managed to raise one adopted son, Jonathan (27), and three daughters Maria (17), Katelyn (15), and Victoria (13). After living in D.C. for the last 20 years, he truly understands the definition of Sanctuary every time he walks into the doors of First Baptist Church of Alexandria. - Psalm 84:10
