Fourth Presbyterian Church has 36 Deacons. Elected by the congregation, Deacons come from all walks of life and all sorts of professions. You may not be aware of everything Fourth’s Board of Deacons does, and in some ways that is by design. The Board carries out its responsibilities behind the scenes, in strictest confidence. The Deacons Ministry is not supported by the church budget; every penny we spend is raised through generous quarterly offerings from the congregation. Each Deacons activity is bathed with prayer, always with trust that the beauty of Jesus will be evident in all of our contacts. For an overview of the Deacons, click on the links below.
