"Let's Try Something New" - Luke 5:36-39

DEACONS AND TRUSTEES

DEACONS AND TRUSTEES

For the Month of October, we are asking you to be in prayerful meditation regarding persons to serve the church as Deacons and Trustees. During the Month of November, we will receive the recommendations that God has revealed to you from your time of prayer.

 

THERE IS NOT A BIBLICAL JOB DESCRIPTION FOR DEACONS,

BUT THERE ARE BIBLICAL QUALIFICATION

MORAL QUALIFICATIONS

  • Not Double-Tongued (I Timothy 3:8) Two-faced, deceitful in one’s words. Saying one thing and meaning another. Making different representations to different people about the same thing
  • Not Given To Much Wine (I Timothy 3:8)
  • Not Greedy Of Money (I Timothy 3:8) A person who is eager to gain even if such gain degrades their moral character
  • Proven (I Timothy 3:10) Tested, approved. The notion of proving a thing whether it is worthy or not
  • Blameless (I Timothy 3:10) Not merely unaccusable, but unaccused; free from any legal charge
  • Good Reputation (Acts 6:3) To bear honorable testimony; to be well-testified

         about. To have a good witness

DOMESTIC QUALIFICATIONS

  • Husband Of One Wife (I Timothy 3:12) One at a time. Not having multiple spouses. This qualification does not disqualify those who are not married or who are divorced
  • Ruling His Children Well (I Timothy 3:12)
  • Ruling His Own House Well (I Timothy 3:12)

SPIRITUAL QUALIFICATIONS

  • Full Of The Holy Spirit (Acts 6:3) Full = abounding or abundant
  • Full Of Wisdom (Acts 6:3) Full = abounding or abundant
  • Grave (Reverent) (I Timothy 3:8) Majestic and awe-inspiring qualities, which do not repel but invite and attract
  • Holding The Mystery Of The Faith In Pure Conscience (I Timothy 3:9) A significant association of faith with ethics. Weiss notes, “It is as if the conscience were the vessel in which the mystery of the faith is preserved”

 

TRUSTEES

Trustees are also called to be servants, as well as stewards. Since the position of Trustee is not a Biblical Office, there are no Biblical qualifications provided. However, we believe that the Biblical Qualifications and the Pilgrim Rest Qualifications used to select Deacons, should be the same qualifications used to select Trustees.

 

PILGRIM REST QUALIFICATIONS

  • Willing to submit to leadership
  • Willing to regularly attend Worship, Bible Study, Sunday School and Prayer
