Proposed Yoke-fellow Program

May 10th, 2011

At our May business meeting we will vote on a proposed Deacon Yokefellow program.

The proposal is as follows:

A yokefellow is a man from the church family who assists the deacon in his ministry as a deacon.

Prospective deacons may be asked to serve twelve months as a Yokefellow, working beside other deacons to learn about the duties and responsibilities of service as a deacon.

Any Yokefellow-time is useful to help the church determine whether the prospective deacon should indeed serve. The prospective deacon may also use Yokefellow-time for personal, prayerful reflection to determine if he should or must serve Jesus as a deacon of His church.
