Bible: 1 Timothy 3:1-3

Qualifications for Overseers and Deacons

3:1 This saying 1  is trustworthy: “If someone aspires to the office of overseer, 2  he desires a good work.” 3:2 The overseer 3  then must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, 4  temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, an able teacher, 3:3 not a drunkard, not violent, but gentle, not contentious, free from the love of money.
