Deacons

Deacons

At Indian Hills Christian Fellowship, the Deacons assist the Pastor in fulfilling the work of shepherding the Church. The Deacons are elected by the congregation from within the membership of the church. The biblical qualifications for a deacon are outlined in 1 Timothy 3:1-13 and Titus 1:6-9, focusing primarily on character and relationships within the church, family and community. They often help the pastor evaluate and recommend major matters to be brought before the congregation, and are involved in various ministries, such as praying for and visiting the sick, helping families in distress, and providing relief to the poor.
