Filling a Deacon Position Together: what are your thoughts?

Recently a Diaconal Ministries Canada staff person was visiting a number of diaconates. Those visits always provide challenging and thoughtful discussions. Here is one idea that came up:

“Sometimes spouses share some of the responsibilities and functions of a deacon. At one Ontario CRC, deacons raised the idea of electing husband and wife teams to fill a deacon position together.”

What are your thoughts or experiences related to this idea? We want to hear from you! Please comment below.
