CCWC is deacon served, which means:
- Only those who fulfill the qualification in 1 Tim 3:8-13 are qualified to serve the local church as deacons. This means that both men and women may serve as deacons at CCWC.
- Acts 6 provides the basis for setting aside a group of people to do manual work, freeing up the elders to do the work of prayer and the ministry of the word.
- Deacons have no authority or leadership, and are not a “board,” but are individually set apart specifically to care for the temporal needs of the church.
For more information on how deacons serve in the context of the local church, you can listen to Pastor Raymond’s 2-part sermon series “Deacons in the Church.”
