The New Testament teaches that, in addition to elders, congregations appointed servants referred to as "deacons" (Philippians 1:1). Like elders, these men are to be appointed based upon character traits that are spelled out in scripture (1 Timothy 3:8-13).
These men stand ready to faithfully serve the church in various ways and are vital to the growth of the church.
We are blessed that Wade Slayton is serving in this role.
We are also in the process of training and preparing more men to serve in this role.
