Today’s culture presents its own unique problems and challenges in fulfilling all the responsibilities and duties articulated by scripture for the church body to carry out. As a partial response, the elders of Reston Bible Church this year established the position of deacons and delegated to them the task of addressing the material needs of those that would call RBC their church home. Following a year-long review, selected individuals from the church body presented to the elders a proposed manual for a deacon ministry at RBC. The elders approved the manual and solicited deacon nominations from the congregation.
On November 24, nine deacons were publicly commissioned before the congregation and have begun serving as an extension of the church body’s love and care for widows and widowers, and a channel to direct the generosity of the body of believers at RBC to those with financial or material needs within the congregation. Please be in prayer for our deacons and this ministry.
