Deacons are Servants

Deacons are simply servants. The Greek word diakonos in the New Testament is usually translated as "servant" or "minister." In Acts 6:1-7,  the physical needs of certain church members were not being met. In response, the apostles set aside 7 servants who would care for those physical needs in the church and community. That way, the apostles and elders could focus on prayer and the ministry of the word. By that example, a deacon is not so much a position of power or authority, but of leadership in a particular area of service to the church. We see both men and women (Romans 16:1) being recognized as deacons in the New Testament.

Deacons at The Fields

Deacons at The Fields serve the church by organizing ministries that help us better accomplish our vision as “A Church In The World.” They recruit and resource volunteers, plan and prepare events, work behind the scenes, help to build relationships among the church and community, and so much more. Each of our deacons served our church before they were ever recognized as a deacon. They do all of this out of their love for Christ and desire to see others know His love. Our current deacons are:
