Biblical Standard of a Deacon - 1 Timothy 3:8-13 NASB

Deacons likewise must be men of dignity, not double-tongued, or addicted to much wine or fond of sordid gain, but holding to the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. 10 These men must also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons if they are beyond reproach. 11 Women must likewise be dignified, not malicious gossips, but temperate, faithful in all things. 12 Deacons must be husbands of only one wife, and good managers of their children and their own households. 13 For those who have served well as deacons obtain for themselves a high standing and great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.

In addition to the general functions, our deacons are organized in teams with a specific purpose in order to be most efficiant in ministering to the church body and advancing the kingdom of God.
