Elder Deacon Mandates


Biblical Qualifications for Elders and Deacons:  I Timothy 3:1-13 and Titus 1:5-9.  Please read and use these passages in your prayerful consideration of who could best serve Our Church as Elders and Deacons.  You may also wish to take note of the “Form for Ordination of Elders and Deacons” in the Psalter Hymnal pages 1004-1005.

We love your comments! Thanks for your help upholding the Community Guidelines to make this an encouraging and respectful community for everyone.

In the passages from 1 Tim. it begins with the assumption or requirement that there be a desire to serve in these offices, it seems this is lacking in many cases.  Currently in our church we are struggling to come up with enough nominees to fill the slots, what does this say about a congregation?
