Deacons: Leading Servants of the Church

The origin story of the deacon comes from Acts 6. Deacons were selected, not based on the present size of the church, but based on the present needs of the church. A deacon and a table waiter/waitress have a lot in common. In the Bible, they are the same word. Today, deacons keep the servant-identity of Jesus before the church. However, all Christians should be morally qualified to be deacons. Is there any reason, that after engaging at Foothills for five years, you wouldn’t be ready to deacon for a season?

Scripture: Acts 6:1-7
