Deacons and Their Wives

From Series: Household of Faith, Volume 1

1 Timothy 3:8-16  (ID: 1964)

What exactly is the role of a deacon, and how does it differ from the role of an elder in the church? Alistair Begg clarifies the similarities and differences between these equally valued roles and describes the character requirements that are necessary for deacons and their wives. Serving the church well, with a good attitude, brings blessing to the servant and glory to God, regardless of the roles we fulfill.
