“Deacons, likewise, are to be men worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience. They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons. In the same way, their wives are to be women worthy of respect, not malicious talkers but temperate and trustworthy in everything. A deacon must be the husband of but one wife and must manage his children and his household well. Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus” . – 1 Timothy 3: 8-13

Benjamin has served as a deacon for the church of Christ at New York Avenue since 2014. He helps organize the assembly’s efforts in outreach to the local community, and coordinating our efforts in spreading the Good News while being Christ’s hands and feet in the more distant mission fields we work in. Benjamin and his wife Jona have been married 12 years and homeschool their 5 children.
Although Scot has been stepping up for years and helping wherever there has been a need, he agreed to start serving the congregation as a deacon in 2015 and help organize church education efforts. Along with his wife Rachel, they enjoy serving as Bible school teachers, where they teach a class together. They have one daughter, Kathryn. In their spare time they enjoy taking care of their ranch, family activities, and cheering the Vols on.
