Chairman Donald Ransom
In accordance with the meaning of the word and practice of the New Testament, deacons are to be servants of the Church. The duties of the Deacons are to serve with the pastor and Church staff in planning and implementing worship service programs; in performing pastoral ministries; in proclaiming the gospel to believers and unbelievers; caring for Church members and other persons in the community; leading the Church to engage in a fellowship of worship, witnessing, education, and ministry; and in leading the Church by example in performing its functions.
Deacon likewise must be men of dignity, not double,-tongued, or addicted to much wine or fond of sordid gain, but holding to the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. These men must also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons if they are beyond reproach.
1 Timothy 3:8-13
