WANTED: IMPERFECT MEN TO BE DEACONS

ACTS 6:1-7

The 8,000-member early church at Jerusalem had experienced a phenomenal explosion in changed lives and the longing of the newly saved to serve Jesus.

This passage covers their solution and the solution we use today – deacons. What was the purpose of deacons, and what were their qualifications?
