imageWherever special ministry tasks were needed, since the beginning of the church, servant leaders (deacons) were appointed to carry out those tasks. As in Acts 6, where people of “good reputation, full of wisdom and the Holy Spirit” were appointed to the task of caring for neglected Grecian widows, our servant leaders assume responsibility for numerous ministry tasks throughout the life of the church.These Godly leaders increase the quantity and quality of the church’s mission and ministry. As with the elders, when new deacons are needed from time to time, men are nominated by the congregation and are then approved by the Elders and the membership.
