Resources in the ‘deacons’ Category
The deacon process is designed to provide uniformity as to how Sojourn calls, equips, and releases its leaders. While there is uniformity to the process, each ministry leader – at his own discretion – should apply appropriate training according to the ministry area.
Bible-believing Christians disagree as to whether the Scripture permits a women to serve in the role of deacon (a female deacon is also sometimes called a “deaconess”). After careful study and prayer, the elders of Sojourn have agreed that the Scripture allows our church to call female deacons.
