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.
