He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap.  In the same way, deacons are to be worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain.  They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience.  A deacon must be faithful to his wife and must manage his children and his household well.  1 Timothy 3: 6-9; 12 (NIV)

Our mission as Deacons is to understand and uphold the bylaws and tenets of the church, to work as a team member with other Deacons, to support each other in prayer and service, to be armor bearers for our pastor, and to pray for him and affirm him to our fellow church members.  We are spiritual leaders who regularly attend and support church services, serve others with a humble, willing attitude, and positively impact the lives of those we serve.  Deacons are to be full of wisdom, self-control and the Holy Spirit, living and serving in a manner that represents Christ.
