The word “deacon” simply means “servant" or "minister". There is a since in which this description should fit all Christians. However, God has also ordered that there be a specific position in the church for deacons. These men serve the church in various ways. The men who hold the office of a deacon are servants at heart and they work diligently for the good of the church. Scripture also tells us that those who desire to be deacons must meet certain qualifications. These qualifications can be found in I Timothy 3:8-13. The Northwest church of Christ is blessed with seven wonderful men who serve as our deacons.
