Emmaus Deacon Ministry
The word “deacon” in Scripture means servant or minister. We see the beginnings of deacons in Acts 6:1-6. In this passage we see a gap in care for certain widows in the early church. The church leaders recognized this gap, but realized they were unable to meet this need and also fulfill their primary calling of preaching and prayer. They decided to raise up 7 men to serve the church and meet this specific need. This moment gave rise to the office of deacon (1 Timothy 3:8-13). Deacons are the lead servants of the church. They serve the church by caring for those in need and meeting the tangible needs of the church. Through the Deacon Ministry at Emmaus Church, these are the very things we will strive to accomplish.
