~ Sandy Barela
A bishop is the leader of the church. He still takes his turn preaching sermons, but in addition he is also the one that performs marriages, baptisms, and church discipline.
The deacon does not preach. He reads the scripture at church, takes care of alms, and it is his job to go speak to anyone about their sins or what they’re doing wrong before it is taken to church or advances to need church discipline.
