Speaker: Lukus Counterman - In Acts 6, the growth of the church and the increasing number of impoverished believers required a restructuring of the community. The apostles gathered the congregation and taught them about a new group of men with distinct servanthood responsibilities. These officers would later be referred to as deacons (1 Tim. 3:8-11; Phil. 1:1). Deacons are needed in the church to provide logistical and material support so that the elders can concentrate their efforts on the Word of God and prayer. Deacons are not responsible to teach or spiritually lead the congregation, but instead provide oversight in the service-oriented functions of the church so that needs are cared for and the gospel can spread.
