Deacons of the Diocese of Albany
Deacons: Administration

The Twelve called together the community of the disciples and said, “It is not right for us to neglect the word of God to serve at table.  Select from among you seven reputable men, filled with the Spirit and wisdom, whom we shall appoint to this task, whereas we shall devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.”  The proposal was acceptable to the whole community, so they chose Stephen, a man filled with faith and the Holy Spirit, also Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicholas of Antioch, a convert to Judaism.  They presented these men to the apostles who prayed and laid hands on them.
  Acts 6:2-6.
