Our Deacons

Our Deacons

"Likewise deacons must be reverent, not double-tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy for money, holding the mystery of the faith with a pure conscience. But let these also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons, being foundblameless. Likewise, their wives must be reverent, not slanderers, temperate, faithful in all things. Let deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. For those who have served well as deacons obtain for themselves a good standing and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus." (1 Timothy 3:8-13)

In conjunction with God's will in His Word, deacons serve an integral function in the welfare of a congregation. These men primarily function as agents of the eldership to administer to the physical matters of a congregation. Some have suggested that the seven men chosen at the church in Jerusalem are deacon-types (Acts 6). To say though that they are uninvolved with spiritual matters would simply be incorrect. The spiritual qualifications for these men would suggest abilities that go beyond mere "waiting on tables." 

Our congregation is currently blessed to have three men serving in this role.
