LifeGate Deacons


LifeGate Deacon Leadership:

Deacon of Benevolence – Danny Fennell

5% of the church donations are deposited into my side of the benevolence account. These funds are distributed in full each year to people in need by paying for the utilities, rent and some other needs. In addition, we try to do repair or work projects and at year’s end donate funds to the Christian School Teacher Funds, Children’s Homes, etc.

Benevolence Phone 859-640-6386

Deacon of Building and Grounds – Robert Iseli

The grounds and maintenance upkeep is an ongoing, constant project. Interior upkeep occurs on a weekly basis as well as the exterior maintenance during the summer. Of course, items pop up from time to time that need attention. This is not any different from our own homes. Snow removal in the winter is needed for safety purposes and the utility bill also comes out of the maintenance budget. Anyone interested in assisting in the ministry can contact me. Your helping hands will be put to good use.

Deacon of Children’s Education – 

The children’s ministry of LifeGate church exists to bring glory to God. Jesus commanded, ”let the little children come unto me.” Our misison is to be a part of bringing children to faith in Jesus Christ through his shed blood on calvary’s cross. To do this, we exalt God’s word as our source of all truth. We share our own faith with the children and encourage them to weave faith into their lives. We rely totally on the Holy Spirit’s leading in the lives of our own church body to supply the laborers to work in this field of harvest.
