Deacons

Duties

Under the general oversight of the Elder Council, the deacons manage the benevolent, physical, and social needs of the church. In the benevolent functions of the church, the deacons are responsible to maintain the biblical standards of money, charity, work, and related issues (Isa. 10:1–4; Gal. 6:10; Eph. 4:28; 2 Thess. 3:6–15; 1 Tim. 5:3–4, 8).

The Benevolent Fund is available to members, regular attendees and others whose needs become known to New Covenant Bible Church. When a need is made known through the Elder Council, deacons, or members of the church, the deacons will examine the scope and urgency of the need and either address it within the deacons or present a recommendation to the Elder Council for approval. Giving to the indigent (those who walk in off the street) will be decided by the deacons on a case-by-case basis. As a general rule the deacons will not disburse money to indigents, but will purchase items necessary to meet basic needs in such areas as food, clothing, shelter, and travel.

For information about the qualifications and selection process for deacons, see the Constitution.
