Publisher's Summary

How can deacons mobilize service in the Church?

Deacons are essential to a church’s health — yet confusion abounds regarding their biblical job description. What’s their God-given role in a local congregation and how do they relate to the church’s overall mission?

In this short audiobook, Matt Smethurst makes the case that deacons are model servants called to meet tangible needs, organize and mobilize acts of service, preserve the unity of the flock, and support the ministry of the elders. Clearing away common misconceptions, Smethurst offers practical guidance for deploying deacons and helping churches to flourish.

Great review of Deacons in the church!

Helpful to train church Deacons, to remind us what we should/should not be, and how to best serve God in this role. Great. Thank you all for this information and guiding us to serve the Lord better.
