While all Christians are to be servants, deacons are obviously men appointed to a particular role of service within the congregation. Their work and responsibilities are vital to the growth and work of the church. The term which is translated "deacon" is from a Greek word which means "servant." It is defined as "one who executes the commands of another. . . a servant, attendant, or minister" (Thayer). The specific "office of a deacon" is identified in 1 Timothy 3:10-13. An outline of qualifications is given to instruct the church about the type of men needed (Acts 6:3; 1 Tim. 3:8-10). At the Dripping Springs Church of Christ we are blessed with great servants who love the Lord and are ready and willing to serve.
