Roles in the Church: Deacons – 5/19/19 Bible Class

Teacher: Matt Burleson
As we continue studying matters of leadership within the church, we shift our focus to deacons.  In this lesson, we consider both the qualifications and work of deacons.  Near the end of this lesson, a comment is made about a “deaconess,” but no time was given for discussion on this matter.  Please understand that the Orangeburg Church of Christ respects and adheres to the Bible’s teachings that women are not permitted to serve in any role of authority over a man, and that one who serves as a deacon must be a man, per the qualification of 1 TImothy 3.
