Deacon Qualifications and Nominations

The Scriptures teach that there are two servant leader offices in the church: Elder/Pastor and Deacon. These two offices are meant to be a partnership in ministry for the health of the church and the progress of the Gospel in the world.

Deacons meet needs in the church family and support the ministry of the Word. Needs must be met, and the Gospel must be preached. The church must be led. People must be helped. Several of our deacons will be rolling off of the Deacon Team at the end of the year.

Here you will find a list of the biblical qualifications for Deacons. Please read these carefully, then use the nomination form provided to submit your nominations for people to serve as Deacon at Foothills.

If you prefer a physical copy, you can download and print the Deacon Nomination form here.

Nominations are open now and close on August 9. Following that date, the Elders will consider all the nominees, pray, and determine which ones will become candidates to be presented to the church for consideration during the Family Meeting following.
