Ministries : Care and Support : Overview

{ Care and Support }

Overview

As with our physical bodies, any local church in the body of Christ has numerous and ongoing needs for care and support among its members. While the Elders of the church are responsible for the overall shepherding and spiritual oversight of people’s souls (Acts 20:28; Heb. 13:17), there are many physical and practical needs among the church body that must be attended to by someone. We understand the Biblical office of “Deacon” as being given by God to oversee ministry to these many practical needs (Acts 6:1-6; 1 Tim. 3:8-13). The Deacons complement the Elders in their shepherding work (for a fuller explanation of our understanding, please refer to our Statement of Faith and the section titled The Church). We currently view these physical and practical needs as falling under two categories: Caring Ministries, which concern individual needs among church members (personal finances, health, food, etc.), and Support Ministries, which concern corporate needs among the whole church (facilities, church finances, etc.).
