All DayCategory: All Northwest | Coordinator: Kyle Jernigan
We are blessed as a church to have believers who are full of the Spirit, wisdom, and serve faithfully. Through this nomination process, we are recognizing those using their spiritual gifts to serve the body of Christ and accomplish the mission of the church. Their attitudes and actions support the proclamation of the gospel, Christ-centered community, and living on mission.
After the apostle Paul wrote to Timothy concerning the qualifications of the pastors of the church, those who lead and teach, he then shared the qualifications for those who serve as deacons:
8 Deacons likewise must be dignified, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for dishonest gain. 9 They must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. 10 And let them also be tested first; then let them serve as deacons if they prove themselves blameless. 11 Their wives likewise must be dignified, not slanderers, but sober-minded, faithful in all things. 12 Let deacons each be the husband of one wife, managing their children and their own households well. 13 For those who serve well as deacons gain a good standing for themselves and also great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.
(1 Timothy 2:8-13)
