The term Deacon literally means to serve. It refers to an attendant, a waiter, or one who ministers to another. As a matter of fact, the first Deacons were called to serve food to widows in the church and we continue to place serving communion to shut-ins in the hands of this able body of men. However, the duties go well beyond that at Berean.
We have deacons that fill vital roles in our youth department, missions and finance ministry. As the specific duties are not spelled out in the Bible, it ultimately depends on the needs of the church, the needs of the members and the spiritual gifts of the Deacons available to serve. To have a physical need met, contact the Deacons here.
