Diaconate Ministry

The role of the deacon is to represent Christ and his church, especially as a servant for people in need and to assist bishops, pastors, elders and the men of God. Deacons are ordained, not for preaching but to service. They serve as the Lord may lead them. Deacons are to be problem solvers and preservers of church harmony. The office of a deacon demands a high level of commitment, a mature knowledge of the faith and dedication to fellowship and service. I Timothy 3:13 summarizes it best, “For those who have served well as Deacons obtain for themselves a high standing and great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.”
