Redeemer is part of the Presbyterian Church in America (called the “PCA), an evangelical denomination in the Reformed tradition. We recognize two biblically identified offices in the church- elder and deacon. The elders oversee the preaching and teaching of the Word of God, administration of the sacraments, and general spiritual care of the membership. The deacons, as per Acts 6, oversee the physical needs of the church. The deacons work diligently to be sure the elders have no material hinderances to ministering the Word of God to the flock. The deacons take care of the property and also are ministers of mercy to those who have special material needs within the body.
Redeemer currently has 12 deacons.
