our deacons


Our Deacons serve the Lord by conducting the caring ministry of the church-doing the benevolence work, being alert to the spiritual needs of the congregation-for the purposes of freeing the pastoral staff to focus on prayer and the ministry of the Word, promoting unity within the church, and facilitating the spread of the gospel.

    member since 1983

    Family Information: Wife- Deborah Cabral,  Daughters- Stephanie Walters & Samantha Bronson

     Membership Involvement: Choir,  Church Treasurer,  Sunday  Prayer Partner, other various committees over the years at NLBC  I believed in Christ as my savior about the age of 13, but shortly after my parents stopped attending church and naturally I did also. It wasn’t until about 1990 when I took a course called “Master Life” that I began to grow spiritually. This is when the Word began to transform my mind and life to the glory of God.

     I love the cross section of individuals we have at NLBC. As a church speaker for the Gideons I get to worship on Sunday mornings with several other churches. Sadly some have no children or youth and no racial diversity. I remember one day at work a Cambodian child came up to me and said, “You go to my church.” Indeed I do and would not want it any other way.
