The Biblical qualifications for a deacon (1 Timothy 3:8-13) Focus primarily on character and relationships within the church, family and community. Deacons are to be persons of impeccable character and deep faith who rely on the Holy Spirit. Act 6:1-6 likely records the beginning of the role deacons.

Note: If you were already a Deacon before joining United Temple of Praise, please contact the Pastor and arrange an appointment to talk with him for further instructions.
