In this sermon we transition from the qualifications of elders who lead and teach to the qualifications for deacons/deaconesses who carry out, under the elders' oversight, some of the more basic but essential tasks of the church so that the elders could give their attention to their primary tasks of prayer and teaching. The specific tasks of a deacon/deaconess are not well-defined and perhaps that is because they served in so many different kinds of ways it was hard to define exactly what they did. Their primary ministry seems to be to meet the practical needs of the local congregation…whatever those needs may be. Men who became elders, no doubt, were first deacons who proved themselves trustworthy.
