    Saint Stephen, one of the first seven deacons in the Christian Church, holding a Gospel Book in a painting by Giacomo Cavedone. A deacon is a member of the diaconate, an office in Christian churches that is generally associated with service of some kind, but which varies among theological and denominational traditions.   The same question circles about even now, as the church during the past 50 years continued and continues to absorb the diaconate as a permanent ministry and newly discusses women in it.

By John McKinley. In part 1 of this series of posts on the office of deacon, I briefly presented support for reading 1 Timothy as best understood to refer to woman deacons, not wives of male deacons. Additionally to that exegetical and historical evidence, I observe that the only person identified with anything close to the title of deacon in the Bible is a woman, Phoebe, a diakonos of Author: The Good Book Blog.

Question: "What are the responsibilities of deacons in the church?" Answer: In the New Testament, the word usually translated "serve" is the Greek word diakoneo, which literally means "through the dirt." It refers to an attendant, a waiter, or one who ministers to another.

From this word we get the English word “deacon.”. When deacons serve in an agency or setting beyond the local church, the bishop, after consultation with the deacon and the pastor in charge, shall appoint the deacon to a congregation where they will take missional responsibility for leading other Christians into ministries of service (a “secondary” appointment).

There are no biblical qualifications for trustees, council members, “leadership teams,” or other titles of our. Deacon Chairmen in the church, plus two appointees of the current Chairman (appointees will not be deacon officers.) The appointees will have been ratified by a majority vote of a quorum of the Deacon body present at a regular meeting of the deacons.
