A Deacon Job Description

  7325 views

I recently reviewed a job description template for CRC Deacons, which was created by ServiceLink and is found here. The document is meant to serve as a guideline for congregations so that information specific to each church can be inserted where needed.

I decided to take it upon myself to make some small changes to the document, most of which reflect emphases from recent task force reports, such as equipping members for the work of diakonia/service; collaboration with churches and community organizations; and engagement with community members/neighbors.

Let me know if this document has been helpful to you by leaving a comment or emailing me at jack@hdccrc.org. Additionally, I would also be interested in hearing about, and perhaps seeing, what kind of description of responsibilities your church provides deacons . . . if any.
