Board of Deacons

The office of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of sympathy, witness, and service after the example of Jesus Christ. Persons of spiritual character, honest repute, of exemplary lives, brotherly and sisterly love, warm sympathies and sound judgment should be chosen for this office.


It is the duty of deacons, first of all, to minister to those who are in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and to any who may be in distress both within and beyond the community of faith. They shall assume such other duties as may be delegated to them from time to time by the session, such as leading the people in worship through prayers of intercession, reading the Scriptures, presenting the gifts of the people, and assisting with the Lord’s Supper. Book of Order, G-6.0401–02

Diane Yang-Deacon Chair

I am a retired engineer and manager from AT&T, specializing in electronics for communication & radio. Ed Yang and I have been married since 2010. Together, we have 4 sons & 7 grandchildren. We both have always been active in church service. By becoming a Deacon, I  would be able to continue that service with St. John's, where the congregation is friendly, caring, and willing to serve. I would be honored to be a part of that service.
