What an honor. Praise the Lord for godly young men!
The role of deacon varies among different churches, even of the same denomination. I've been to churches where a deacon delivered the sermon, and ones where they answered the mail. Would you mind sharing what your husband does?
What an honor and special blessing! We miss you all! :)love, ~Jennifer
Sorry it took me so long to answer! A deacon at our church is in charge of the "physical" needs of the spiritual body. They take care of the widows, widowers, service projects, etc. :)
