Having looked at the functions and qualifications for elders, we now turn to examine those for Deacons in the church. We see that in many ways they are similar, since Deacons are to relieve Elders of some of their duties so they can give themselves to prayer and ministry of the Word.

We also look briefly about the role that women may play in this regard, and then see how graciously our God rewards those who diligently serve Him.
