A Deacon is defined as the servant of God; an ordained helper in the church and a church leader who ministers to others. The word Deacon appears only five times in the King James Version of the Bible and describes how Christians meet the needs of fellow Christians.
Within the Board of Deacons there is a book of laws and behavioral standards of conduct for Deacons. This is also followed up in 1Timothy 3:8-10. Whenever a decision is reached by the Board of Deacons and the Pastor, it is relayed to the congregation by the Pastor.
Deacon's are generally nominated or recommended by other board members and the Pastor. This recommendation is presented to the congregation and voted on. At that time, there are several classes held and new Deacon's are accompanied by veteran Deacon's to make them familiar with their duties. Deacon's are then ordained by the church and continue to perform their duties. Board of Deacons meetings are held every Friday before the first Sunday of every month.
