In keeping with Acts 6:1-6, Tenth Church appoints "...men of good repute, full of the Spirit and of wisdom..." (Acts 6:3 ESV) to carry out the work of mercy ministry within our congregation. These men are ordained deacons.


At Tenth deaconesses are non-ordained women who assist the Board of Deacons in carrying out its ministry, particularly in areas where it is more appropriate for women than men to serve.
