Why Sovereign Grace Church Needs Deacons
This is a big week in the life of our young church. We are ordaining our first deacon on Sunday and you are invited to watch. This should be a wonderful moment as we thank God for the gift of leadership and pray for our future together.
If you're new and not sure what we mean by "ordaining," it's just a fancy way of saying we are appointing someone to an official office of the church. And if you're wondering what deacons do and why we need them, here's a brief list (check out the full blog post here).
Deacons are servants.
Deacons promote diversity.
Deacons work for unity.
Deacons preserve pastoral ministry.
Deacons are missional.
