    Contributed by Dave Mcfadden on Nov 9, 2010
    based on 4 ratings

    What are the qualities a church should look for in a Deacon?

    We read here about the election of the first Deacons. In verse 1 we are told of a situation that demanded attention. Part of the congregation was being neglected. The Greek speaking Jews in the early church believed that the Aramaic speaking Jews were receiving all of the attention of the more

    based on 2 ratings

    The story in Acts 8, that tells of Philip's preaching in Samaria resulting in an Evangelism Explosion, contains 3 puzzles that many folks overlook. What are these puzzles and what can they teach us about our walk with Christ?

    OPEN: People have created puzzles for centuries. There’ve been crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, Rubik's cube, and scads of others in all shapes and sizes. The better the puzzle, the more difficult it is to solve, and by that standard, one of the Holy Grails of such puzzles is this one: more

  • Called To Serve - Deacon Ordination Series

    Contributed by Doug Fannon on Nov 13, 2017

    Message for a Deacon Ordination Service - Why deacons?

    Acts 6:1–4 (NKJV) Brother Sharber, our former pastor, a number of years ago was explaining to me the difference between the pastor and the deacon. Both are charged with doing good. Doing good for the church and doing good for the community. Whereas the pastor was paid for doing good, the more

  • Why Answer? Series

    Contributed by Michael Mccartney on Feb 26, 2010
    based on 1 rating

    What’s the calling Paul talks about in Ephesians 4:1? Is it God calling you to surrender yourself to Him! Then you responding to God’s personal call on your life and saying “Yes, Lord! Not my will but your will be done!”

    Why Answer? On the Lighter side: These are all apparently true statements made by important people... "I'm not going to have some reporters pawing through our papers. We are the president." -Hillary Clinton commenting on the release of subpoenaed documents "The president has kept all more

    4 points to be considered by the calling Church and the considered Candidate

    Deacons I. Their Call * Initiated to fix a problem within the Church * Should be out of necessity, not just because * The desire and grace to serve (not rule) comes from the Lord The call itself comes from the Church * The Church should remember this….trust them, respect more

  • What's This All About?

    Contributed by Curry Pikkaart on Jan 14, 2011

    so we've ordained and installed Elders and Deacons. What is this really all about? What are church leaders to do and to be?

    “What’s This All About?” Heb. 13:7-21 So we have ordained and installed another group of Elders and Deacons. I truly believe it’s always a very special time in the life of the newly elected leaders and also in the congregation. But what’s this really all about? more

  • The Actions Of A Godly Servant

    Contributed by Greg Addison on May 2, 2011
    based on 14 ratings

    Here is a message that uses the life and actions of Nehemiah as a lesson to challenge and teach the true nature of a servant. This message would work for either dicsipleship or as a challenge for an ordination service.

    THE ACTIONS OF A MAN GOD USES One of the greatest issues facing the church today is the dearth of leadership. There has never been a greater need for God called, God inspired, God equipped leadership. God has however taught us all we need to learn about leadership in the Bible. He has also more

  • Millennial Mystery And Ministry

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Jul 6, 2004
    based on 4 ratings

    Installation of Assistant Pastor. How may a young woman make an impact? By acknowledging that it was God who brought her to this time and place, and by laying down her very life for the task.

    A young woman in a very difficult situation. A crisis moment, for which no training could have fully prepared her. A dangerous moment, one in which the future of a whole people lay in the balance. She had little power, in the usual sense. She wielded no authority, commanded no troops, had access more

  • Hands Touching Series

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Sep 14, 2008
    based on 1 rating

    Ordination sermon for new deacons. God’s gifts are not found in timidity, but in the power to encourage, the touch of love, and the skill of self-discipline, all symbolized in the laying on of hands.

    Of all the ways we can use our hands, none is more authentically human than touching. Touching, not grasping, for some of the apes can do that too. Touching, not hitting, for that is a perversion of our humanity. Touching, not taking, for that is part of our fallen nature. We are most human more

  • The End Of Things

    based on 1 rating

    Farewell sermon.

    There is nothing more poignant than considering the end of things. Whenever we experience the end of things it helps us consider what is really important. I was struck this week by John Piper’s journal entry: He recounted as he sat beside the bed of his father keeping a vigil. He monitored his more
