The Deacons are the administrative assistants to the Pastor in the matter of temporal affairs in the congregation and receive their directions from the Pastor. The Deacons receive the funds given for the support of the ministry under the direction of the Pastor, they are also lay preachers in the Church and thus are enjoined by scripture to be “apt to teach.” In the absence of Elders, under the direction of the Pastor, a deacon may be assigned to minister in the congregation. The Deacons are the spiritual assistants to the Shepherd of the Flock and their title implies “servant;” therefore, our deacons serve the congregation in temporal and spiritual matters whenever feasible and as directed by the Shepherd.
