Deacons and their Wives

The office of deacon is distinguished from that of elder or pastor in that qualifications are given for the deacon’s wife as well as the man himself.  Of course, some have argued for a position of “deaconess” as well, which I attempt to show is not justified biblically.

This message, then, covers the requirements for the deacon’s wife, then the final set of qualifications for the deacon, and finally, Paul’s description of the reward of a godly deacon.
