Church Elders

According to the Bible, the church is to be led by qualified and called men as elders. Simply put, a church elder is a man called by God to be an overseer. According to the Bible, elders are to be known for their prayer life (1 Tim. 2:8) , modelling Christ-like service (Matt. 20:26-28 ; 1 Pet. 5:2) , and being practically responsible in their homes, as well as in the workplace (1 Tim. 3:4-7). Not just any man can serve as an elder they must be qualified to do so.

Steve says it has been great to see God working in and through Grace Church, growing in numbers and growing in Christlikness.


Church Deacons

The term deacon comes from the Greek word diakonos meaning servant or minister. The office of deacon is first mentioned in Acts 6 . As the burden of ministry grew for the early church, elders, in addition to prayer, study, leading, and teaching, were also taking on large workloads to serve the needy in the church and handle the administrative functions of the church. As a solution, the elders appointed deacons to assist the elders in these responsibilities. Simply put, these are men and women who are called by God to serve others in practical ways.
