Deacon and Deaconess
This group of exemplary servants acts as assistants to the pastor. This biblical office is to be held with the highest degree of dignity and humility. The assignment of this ministry is not to dictate to the pastor but rather to cooperate with him to carry out God’s work.
We resolve that we will display the proper character described in Acts 6:3. Also we will meet the qualifications listed in 1 Timothy 3:8-9.
We resolve that we will serve tables, in order to free up our pastor to carry out his duties of preaching, teaching and dedication to prayer.
We resolve that we must understand as well as implement the will of God in our own lives, that we could be trusted with such a great responsibility and authority.
