Pastors and Deacons Working Together

Biblically, how should pastors and deacons relate to and work with one another? What areas of overlap exist between these offices? How do pastors and deacons communicate with one another and how often should they meet together? How do pastors and deacons respect biblically appointed boundaries in their respective offices? Should deacons have concern for the physical needs of the pastor and his family? Do deacons need the pastors/elders’ approval of every decision they make?

Listen as Brian and Jim address these issues and more in this episode.
