The Scriptures teach that the church and the elders are to be served by qualified deacons. Deacons are to be tested for a season related to their character, competence, and capacity to serve as a deacon (I Timothy 3:8-11). Upon proving qualification, deacons are tasked with serving the elders in doing justice and perhaps in leading volunteer teams in areas that impact the entire church (e.g. gatherings, events, hospitality, financial systems, etc.). Churches that are able to contend for the scriptural parameters of deaconship and contextualize for the practical issues that arise in a given context will effectively lead their church to greater fruitfulness.
