Recommending a man to the diaconate should not be taken lightly. Before you fill in and submit this recommendation form, please spend significant time in prayer for God's guidance and wisdom.
Understand that this is merely a recommendation form. The elders may not believe a man is ready for the diaconate or they may be privy to information that may disqualify a man from serving in this capacity. Therefore, a recommendation for deacon is not a nomination for deacon.
Every deacon must be qualified according to the guidance in 1 Timothy 3:8-10, 12-13 and Acts 6:3.
