One of our duties as a local church is to do our best to care for everyone who comes into our church and to care well for each of them as they leave. In order to do this, we must think well about member resignations. Every situation will be different, but we wanted to give a framework for how we think about this matter as elders.
Deacons: The Office & Qualifications
This position paper reflects what we, as an elder board, are currently most persuaded by. We want to honestly say on the outset that the office of deacon is simply not that clear in the bible. We pray this document is read with the same sense of humility we have sought in creating it. May it bring clarity and help the unity of our church.
