deacons-serviceDirectrice: Toniane Vernet

Assistante Directeur: Pascale Ismé, James Déjean

The church elects the Community Services/Dorcas Society leader, assistant leaders (as needed), and secretary-treasurer. This organization gathers and prepares clothing, food, and other supplies for those in need and works closely with the deacons and deaconesses. Community Services/Dorcas ministry, however, includes more than giving material aid. It encompasses adult education, visiting, homemaking, home nursing, counseling, and other services.

If the church operates a Community Services center, the personal ministries council is its governing committee. The council appoints the director of the center, who is a member of the council.

When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.Matthew 9:36 (NIV)

Mission:

Vision:

To see the Haitian Horeb SDA church becomes a place of refuge to create a safe and harmonious environment where the community can acquire skills and resources necessary to build self-sufficient locally and abroad.

Scripture:

Voyant la foule il fut emu de compassion pour elle, parce qu’elle etait languissante et abattue comme des brebis qui n’ont pas de berger.  Mathieu 9 v 36
