At Village, deacons are "servants" who try to help church
families and assist with
church activites, in keeping with the New Testament model.
Deacons are elected from all members of the church to serve for
three-year terms, after which the deacon is not eleigible for election
again for a year. Village follows the Deacon Family Ministry
Plan. Each deacon has a "flock" of 6 to 10 families as a special
focus for care.
On October 24, 2004, Village ordained three new deacons with the
traditional "laying on of hands" by those already ordained.
