The Diaconate

Troy Jackson

Chairman

The Deacons are the trusted stewards of the church.

Persons of good character and strong faith upon whose shoulders the rest the physical operation of the church. It is the Deacons’ duty to shore up and oversee the needs of God’s house and God’s people, and to support and assist the Pastor and the ministerial staff so that they would be free to concentrate on seeing to the spiritual needs of the body of Christ.

“Deacons likewise must be dignified, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for dishonest gain. They must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience.”

– 1 Timothy 3:8-13 ESV

Servant Leaders

There is no work of a pastor more imperative in his ministry than that of equipping and partnering with the very men who have been appointed to serve the congregation with him. Deacons, according to Acts 6:3, are assigned the task of caring for the Saints. This work should never be taken lightly. A Deacon is in a position of Servant Leadership which requires him to lead with sound spiritual guidance that comes from the Pastor and the Deacon’s own personal relationship with Christ. We serve the congregation by being examples of holiness. We serve together to administer the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We visit the sick, the widows, and members who have strayed away from the flock. We join together in carrying out God’s vision for the church.
