Week 1 - Leadership: Deacons

Elders/Pastors- _Guide the Church____

Deacons- __Serve the Church__________

What is a Deacon?

Diakonos— one who waits on tables. A humble servant.

Diakonia— the act of waiting on tables.

Diakoneo— to wait on tables. To "deacon".

In the same way, deacons are to be worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience. They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons. In the same way, the women are to be worthy of respect, not malicious talkers but temperate and trustworthy in everything. A deacon must be faithful to his wife and must manage his children and his household well.
I Timothy 3: 8-12
