1 Timothy 3:8-13 Deacons
What are the similarities to elders in Paul’s qualifications for the leadership role of Deacons in the New Testament church? GBC does not have formally-recognized Deacons as the staff and others volunteer leaders, like Stephen Ministers and small group leaders, fulfill some of the intention of the NT Deacon. However, there are two staff positions, the Caring and Connections Pastors, that mostly embody both the role and the office of this critical church leadership role. (See also Acts 6)
