Deacons

Serve. Unify. Lead.

Each year, the Broadmoor Family is invited to offer nominations for qualified men to serve as deacons. As we live out our commitment to follow Jesus, be changed by Jesus, and join Him in His mission to make disciples, God positions key people to lead the charge in investing in others through servant leadership as deacons. After a careful vetting process, qualified nominees meet with our pastors, as well as with our Deacon Nominee Review Team. Once accepted and approved by the church body, these men are ordained and celebrated in a special evening service. 

Nominations

Nominations will be submitted online. Before submitting your nomination, we ask that you prayerfully consider the Biblical Qualifications and the Practical Considerations listed below, as well as the qualifications for a Deacon's wife.


All nominations will be accepted beginning Sunday, August 30, through Sunday, September 20, 2020.

Biblical Qualifications

Acts 6:1-6 

In those days when the number of disciples was increasing, the Hellenistic Jews among them complained against the Hebraic Jews because their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution of food. So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, "It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables. Brothers and sisters, choose seven men from among you who are known to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will turn this responsibility over to them and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word."

This proposal pleased the whole group. They chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit: also Philip, Procorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas from Antioch, a convert to Judaism. They presented these men to the apostles, who prayed and laid their hands on them.

1 Timothy 3:8-13

In the same way, deacons are to be worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience. They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons.

In the same way, the women are to be worthy of respect, not malicious takers but temperate and trustworthy in everything. A deacon must be faithful to his wife and must manage his children and his household well. Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus.
