The Deacon’s Work

The word ‘group’ that defines the word ‘deacon’ gives us some idea of the work to be done by those who wait on tables. When you examine the qualifications of the offices of elder and deacon, one striking contrast is the call to the elder “to be able to teach” while the deacon is teaching as he fulfills his duties. The formal teaching and preaching ministries, along with the ministry of prayer, are an area of primary responsibility of the elder (1 Tim 3:2). Our case study and the lack of details outside of the snippet in Acts means that no clear details exist mandating the x, y, and z duties to the office of deacon. The works to be done are duties assigned by the elders and those duties are to be done as God directs by His word. the qualifications of the deacon, the servant, the work, the administrator, qualifications of the deacon, qualifications of the deacon, deacon
