Rev. Steven J. Caldwell,


New Providence Missionary Baptist Church - Board of Deacons

At New Providence Missionary Baptist Church, men are elected by the congregation to hold the honorable position of deacon. Men that are elected to the position of deacon must live a life which has exhibited the characteristics of faithfulness and loyalty to both the Lord and His church.


There are three passages in the New Testament commonly cited concerning the Office of Deacon:


  • Acts 6:1-7;
  • Philippians 1:1; and
  • I Timothy 3:8-12.


The word for deacon in the New Testament originally described a servant who “stirred up dust while waiting on tables.” A deacon’s major attention must be given to serving God under the leadership of the Pastor in the practical ministry of the church.  A deacon's role is intended to serve as a model to the local church through the character of his life as well as through his involvement in ministry.


Paul wrote that the reward for faithfulness in the office of deacon is that they "obtain for themselves a good standing and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus" (1 Tim. 3:13). According to Jesus, the true heroes in the kingdom of God are those who assume the role of diakonos-- a servant (Matt. 20:26-28).
