The office of deacon is generally considered to have originated in the election of the seven as helpers to the apostles (Acts 6:1-6), although they were not called deacons. They were set aside to serve and minister to the needs of the church in Jerusalem. They were to be peacemakers, preserving harmony, order and unity within the church.

The duty of a deacon, along with the pastor, includes responsibility for the pastoral care and counseling of sick and needy members, and working with the pastor in implementing the general work of the church in both its material and spiritual areas.

Acts 6:3

Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.

DEACON JUSTIN BELL
