Deacons in a New Testament church are vital to the well-being of the church. The office they hold is the 2nd of the two church offices as established by Jesus Christ. This office focuses on meeting the needs of a church family in a way that enables the pastor(s) to focus on the ministry of teaching, preaching and prayer.
John Colantoni- Financial Administration
I accepted Jesus Christ as personal Savior when I was 14 years old. Upon graduating from college in Massachusetts, I moved to Northern Virginia where I met my wife at Boulevard Baptist Church in Falls Church. After we moved to Chantilly, the Lord led my wife and I and our four children to Community Baptist Church in 1999. We were drawn to the church by its Bible-based preaching and teaching, commitment to world missions, and the sweet, loving spirit of the people. I have served the church as a youth worker, Sunday school teacher, usher, and co-treasurer. My family and I have been richly blessed through the ministries of Community Baptist Church.
Bill Johnson- Widows and Seniors
I was saved August 21, 1994 and followed in scriptural baptism on November 13, 1994. I became a member of Community Baptist Church in 1999. My wife and I have been involved in the Children?s Church ministries, Missions Coordinator, member of the building committee, various teller teams, worked in the drama ministry and coordinated three-for-three. I am also an usher, work on the Guardian Angels team, and serve as a trustee. On April 18, 2004 CBC ordained me as a deacon. While continuing to serve in various ministries, it is my desire to serve the church family as a deacon with a focus on widow?s and seniors. My wife and I have been blessed by CBC and count it a joy to serve Jesus? church.
Keith Calhoun- Financial Administration
My wife and I both grew up in Christian homes, and have been active in church ministries our entire lives. I prayed to accept Christ as my Savior at age 6. I met my wife at a Christian university. We moved to northern Virginia in 1992 and became founding members of CBC a few years later. I served as treasurer until CBC ordained me a deacon of finance in 2004. CBC’s strong emphasis on family and spiritual maturity are a great help to us raising our three young boys.
