Elders and Deacons

Members of the church family are recognized for their spiritual gifts, maturity, and commitment and are nominated to serve the church as a Deacon or Elder. When accepting the call to become a Deacon or Elder, they are saying “yes” to one of the most challenging and rewarding positions in the community of faith. Deacons and Elders have been growing closer to God through service for centuries and there are numerous references to Deacons and Elders in the Bible (Numbers 11:16-17; Titus 1:5-9; James 5:13-16; 1 Peter 5:1-5; 1Timothy 3:1-7). Being named as a Deacon or Elder is not simply an honorary position, but one that carries significant responsibilities and opportunities for growth. Each Deacon and Elder serves on a Ministry Team.
