The guides that serve in the Voyagers Canoe Trips are men of 1 Timothy 3:8-13.
From the King James Version (KJV), we are given an image of what guiding men must look like. It says:
8 Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;
9 Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.
10 And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless.
11 Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.
12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
13 For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.
The way the Voyagers understand this is that our guides must be walking in light, have an orderly and Godly family, with children who honor God. Equally, those men must not be drinkers or businessmen who partake in dishonorable business practices, and are able to manage, encourage and instruct others in proper order.
