Church Announcement: Bethel Baptist Institutional Church, Jacksonville, FL, Install First Female Deacon!

There was a historical service held Sunday, January 25, 2015 @ Bethel Baptist Institutional Church, Jacksonville, FL,  with the ordination of the first female deacons.

Scripture is not completely clear whether or not a woman can serve as a deacon. The statement that deacons are to be “men worthy of respect” (1 Timothy 3:8 NIV) and the qualification “the husband of but one wife” (1 Timothy 3:12) would seem to disqualify women from serving as deacons.


  1. This is a change of pace for churches! There was a deaconess in the Bible. Her name was Phoebe at the church in Chenchreae. She was acknowledged by Apostle Paul in Romans 16:1. Priscilla may have been serving as one also.

    1. So, does this mean these newly appointed deacons are now in line to become bishops?
