The office of deacon originated in the early church as the Lord provided skilled men with godly character to assess and care for the church’s practical needs. The qualifications for those serving in this role are found in 1 Timothy 3:8-13. Because of their public role, deacons must be men of integrity who have a firm grasp of the gospel. The Lord has graciously provided such men for our church who faithfully serve the pastors as they oversee areas including benevolence, finances, and administration.
