Through the two thousand years of church history, movements have taken Biblical terms like “elder” and “deacon” and applied them to positions and people. Unfortunately, the definitions that go along with the Biblical terms are varied. This is especially true for deacons. In much of recent history (the past 150 years), the role of deacons has significantly been reduced and limited compared to what we see in Scripture. Contrary to tradition, deacons are much more than simple serving tasks like counting money or practical needs in the church. We want to recapture the idea of Biblical Deacons.
