NotesThe qualifications for an overseer and deacons, 1 that they be above reproach, self-controlled, and run their own family well.

  1. These are much the same as Titus: if anyone is above reproach, the husband of one wife, and his children are believers and not open to the charge of debauchery or insubordination. For an overseer, as God’s steward, must be above reproach. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain, but hospitable, a lover of good, self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined. He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it. (‭Titus‬ ‭1‬:‭6-9‬ ESV) ↩︎
