The Lord has established an organization in His church and desires for men to serve as elders (shepherds, bishops, pastors) and deacons (servants), along with any evangelists or preachers. Reference Philippians 1:1; Acts 20:28; Titus 1 and 1 Timothy 3.
Yesterday was a great day for the congregation. We are blessed with so many godly members who live their lives by the will of God. A positive consequence of that is the ability to appoint men to the God-given roles established in the Scriptures.
To that end, Johnny Linder, Carl Morgan and Jeremy Poarch were appointed to serve as additional deacons in the North Hixson congregation. We are thankful to the Lord that we have such men to serve. May God bless their work in His kingdom.
