Our Deacons

Jesus calls qualified men to lead His church as deacons, a word that is literally translated as “servants.”

The office of deacon is first mentioned in Acts 6. As the burden of ministry grew for the early church, elders - in addition to leading, prayer, study, and teaching - were also taking on large workloads to serve the needy in the church and handle the administrative functions of the church. As a solution, the elders appointed deacons to assist the elders in these responsibilities.

At Spring Creek, deacons assist elders in the day-to-day functions of church activity and administration. Qualifications for deacons are found in 1 Timothy 3 and include integrity, generosity, soberness, a clear understanding of the Bible, a well-ordered home, and a good reputation both inside and outside the church.


    I'm Mike Morphet and I came to Christ after attending church camp when I was 9 years old.  I decided on my 10th birthday to be baptized and give my life to Christ.  My family and I have been attending Spring Creek Christian Church since the summer of 2013, becoming members soon after in 2014.  

    In 2017, I had the opportunity to serve as a deacon.  I wanted to be able to help and serve the church that had given so much to me and my family.  I also serve by being a small group leader, running audio during service, being a door greeter, and doing various maintenance jobs around the church.  

    A favorite verse of mine is Psalm 46:10 Cease striving and know that I am God;

    I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth,” which reminds me to let God be God and to trust Him.  Another favorite is John 8:32 "and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”  Know Jesus, know truth.

    I enjoy hunting, fishing, football, and researching new projects to work on.
