The deacons of Providence Church are servants of the church. The biblical role of deacons is to care for the physical and logistical needs of the church so that the elders can concentrate on their primary calling (Acts 6:1-6). Every deacon must unequivocally meet the standards and qualifications found in 1 Timothy 3:8-13. The deacon body cares for the needs of the church in four primary areas: physical needs, benevolence, facility needs, and ministry operations needs.
