A deacon's wife is not an official role and has no official duties within a church. Your role is thus merely symbolic. Be a proper example of your faith and support others in their efforts.

If you read 1 Timothy 3:11 you will find that: The deacon's wife must be reverent. Responsible, means not a slanderer of others or misuse her tongue. Self-control in life, and reliable. Casca E.

The main role of a Deacon's wife is to encourage her husband to follow the concepts of Christianity and help them with their duties towards the church. Duties usually involve in setting up trays for the wine and participate in the baptism ceremonies as well as be a person of strong faith in order to pray the people.
