Local Church Leadership: Deacons

The Bible gives us a really clear demonstration of the outworking of church leadership. Many Western Churches have drifted from scripture and followed wisdom from the world. In this series we have looked at the role of the 5-fold ministry – with the primary responsibility to equip the saints. We have looked at the role of Elders – giving leadership to local congregations. And in this sermon we are going to look at the role of Deacons. Deacons don’t set the vision for the church – but they serve the vision that is set forth by the elders. Let’s find out how to become a deacon; what their responsibility is; and see what Character is necessary.

Scriptures: 1 Timothy 3:8-13, Acts 6:1-6; 8, Acts 8:6-8, 1 peter 4:10, Eph. 1:23
