The word “deacon” means servant, or one who serves. Every church needs those willing to stand on the front line as spiritual leaders. As they serve in the ministry of the church, they model for others the necessity and the dignity of laity in ministry.
In addition to modeling the Christian faith at work, deacons have a vital responsibility to enlist, encourage and equip others like themselves to be the church in mission.
