Deacons of 20th Street Church of Christ
In the early church, in addition to spiritual matters, the church encountered other things that needed attention.
“And in those days, when the number of disciples was multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration. Then the twelve called the multitude of disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables. Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business Acts 6:1-3.”
The 20th Street Church of Christ is blessed to have four deacons working together as a team. They devote their time to church work such as ministry leadership, benevolence, facility issues, and finance.
