In like manner the deacons [must be] worthy of respect, not shifty and double-talkers but sincere in what they say, not given to much wine, not greedy for base gain [craving wealth and resorting to ignoble and dishonest methods of getting it]. 1 Tim. 3:8 (Amp)
And let them also be tried and investigated and proved first; then, if they turn out to be above reproach, let them serve [as deacons]. 1 Tim. 3:10 (Amp)
Let deacons be
the husbands of but one wife, and let them manage [their] children and
their own households well.
For those who perform well as deacons acquire a good standing for themselves and also gain much confidence and freedom and boldness in the faith which is [founded on and centers] in Christ Jesus. 1 Tim. 3:12-13 (Amp)
The Deacons of Wellspring are those
who are assigned the oversight of a specific job area in the church. Their
diaconate ends when the job assignment ends or when they cease to perform
their job assignment.
