PENSACOLA: 9:30 & 11:00am | WARRINGTON: 11:00am



Olive has had a long history of strong and healthy service by the deacon body.  There is a special bond between the Pastor, staff and the deacons in the serving, shepherding, and leading of God’s church.  Olive is Pastor led and deacon served and the deacons serve in a multitude of ways, such as providing affirmation of the Pastor’s leadership, giving counsel in decision making, assisting with the widow ministry, serving during the Wednesday night meals, and helping to provide a secure environment for the worship and activities of the church.  Additionally each individual deacon is expected and has been found to be active in serving in specific areas of the church.
