I was wondering if anyone thinks someone can be an Elder and Deacon at the same time. I used to go to an Old Line United Baptist Association that had a member who was once a Deacon, that they ordained as an Elder after he was set aside for a year. But he is now an Elder only. But can someone be both concurrently( if this is even a word)? The Old Line UB association was Tri-State Zion association of United Baptists....and this is the only time I have ever heard about this happening. I go to the Old Regular Baptists now, and I don't think they have ever done this. I am sure that Brother Bob would know if this ever happened. What do y'all think? PS One of the Elders in that association didn't like them doing it, either.
