In the household of God, elders are called to fulfill a special ministry exemplifying the character of Christ through serving. Within that role of serving, elders watch over the general welfare of the congregation and determine the spiritual and growth needs of the flock. Elders look ahead prayerfully to the future in order to determine the direction of ministry that would most honor God and encourage maturity in His people. Elders also stand alongside ministry staff, sharing in the workload and providing counsel. They actively participate in serving communion and praying for the congregation.
In the household of God, Deacons are called to fulfill special ministry exemplifying the character of Christ through serving. The New Testament makes it clear, a Deacon is to be alert to physical needs of members and others affiliated with the church fellowship. They are to be alert to needs such as ill health, financial setbacks, individuals lacking adequate support materially or socially, and specifically for widows and orphans. Deacons either move directly to meet such needs and/or mobilize other members to help.
In the household of God, Deaconesses are called to fulfill a special ministry exemplifying the character of Christ in serving. Within that role of serving, deaconesses are to assist the elders, deacons, and the church body by helping where needed.
