At Sunnybrook our Deacons are to be the spiritual men of the church and the spiritual leader of their home, loving the Lord, loving the church, being redemptive, forgiving, showing a great deal of patience, kindness, goodwill and at all times friendly with all who enter the church as a citizen, newcomer and visitor.
Sunnybrook follows the scriptures from 1 Timothy 3:2-7 that say: 2 Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not given to drunkenness,not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. 4 He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect. 5 If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church? 6 He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. 7 He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap.
