In this Ordination Service for Wes Bailey, we examine the qualification given for those who serve in the office of Deacon. Not only are these character traits necessary for men who would serve in this office, but they are character traits that every believer should strive to manifest as they are conformed to the Person of Christ.
This is the deacon ordination service for James Shirley and Brandon Ash. As Paul finished listing the qualifications for deacon in this chapter, he notes that those whose who serve well as deacons receive high standing in the church as well as great confidence in the faith. Serving well as deacons happens as we look to Christ, who Himself is a model of loving service. Men in this office “deacon” well as they love Christ and love His people!
