Meet Our New Deacons
We had the privilege of ordaining two men as deacons on 4/21/2013: David Hill and David Sweitzer. Here's our understanding of the office of deacon, as expressed in our church constitution: "The office of deacon was ordained by the Apostles to enable the ministers of the Word to concentrate on the specific functions of their office; namely, preaching, teaching, counseling, and prayer (Acts 6:1-6; 20:20, 31; Eph. 4:11-13). Deacons are primarily responsible to administer the benevolent and business affairs of the church."
