deacons ministry

The Deacons Ministry consists of men with much concern for the work of the Lord, growth of the church membership, and the spiritual well being of all members. Those serving as deacons have a close bond with the entire church membership. They are men with self-discipline, self-improvement and a high standard of service. The Deacons are also the right hand of the Pastor.

"Deacons likewise must be serious, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for gain; they must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. And let them also be tested first; then if they prove themselves blameless let them serve as deacons. The women likewise must be serious, no slanderers, but temperate, faithful in all things. Let deacons be the husband of one wife, and let them manage their children and their households well; for those who serve well as deacons gain a good standing for themselves and also a great confidence in the faith which is in Christ Jesus." (1Timothy 3:8-13 RSV)
