We know you find deacons in the Bible but where do you find a chairman of deacons? It seems the deacons were under the authority of the apostles. I just never thought about it before. There have been alot of pastors that have lost their rightful place as undershepherd for the flock due to a power struggle with a cantankerous, overbearing chairman of deacons. Our home church doesn't have a chairman of deacons which I'm beginning to think might not be a bad idea. I know we incorporate other things concerning the church that aren't precisely spelled out in Scripture. But if you think about it why do you really need one? Why can't the deacons simply come to decisions together and go foward with one voice. Simpy food for thought? What say ye on the BB?
