The deacon body at Westwood Baptist Church (Westwood) fulfills the mission of Westwood by serving selflessly the body of Christ under the leadership and direction of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Scriptures, and the executive staff. Deacons extend the reach and ministry of our ministerial staff in advancing the mission of Jesus Christ by various means, including visiting Westwood members in the hosptial, contacting new members in order to encourage participation, getting involved in the Life Group ministry, and partnering with our ministerial staff to engage the community with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
1 Timothy 3:8-12
"Deacons, likewise, should be worthy of respect, not hypocritical, not drinking a lot of wine, not greedy for money, holding the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. And they must also be tested first; if they prove blameless, then they can serve as deacons. Wives, too, must be worthy of respect, not slanderers, self-controlled, faithful in everything. Deacons must be husbands of one wife, managing their children and their own households competently."
