The word deacon means servant. These are men who are characterized by the qualities enumerated in 1 Timothy 3:8-13. These men give significant time and attention to State Line Church of Christ and the work we are striving to accomplish. It would be impossible for us to continue functioning without the help and support we receive from these men and their families.

1 Timothy 3:8-13
Deacons likewise must be dignified, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for dishonest gain. They must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. And let them also be tested first; then let them serve as deacons if they prove themselves blameless. Their wives likewise must be dignified, not slanderers, but sober-minded, faithful in all things. Let deacons each be the husband of one wife, managing their children and their own households well. For those who serve well as deacons gain a good standing for themselves and also great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus. (ESV)
