The Deacon’s Handbook is more than just a resource for those serving as deacons and those who aspire to be one.
The fact is that you don’t have to be a deacon to apply principles that God would smile upon. The wisdom in this handbook transcends sex, age, and educational background. In other words, it may be geared for deacons, but it can benefit anyone.
Leonard Gillams, a longtime ordained deacon, observes that while no one is perfect, how we behave informs ourselves, others, and God Himself on how we are measuring up to His Holy standards. He considers questions such as:
How did the deacon’s ministry develop?
How can a deacon effectively interact with a congregation?
How can a deacon build a strong spiritual foundation from which to serve the church?
The author emphasizes that just as God holds deacons responsible for the churches they serve, He also expects them to take care of their families.
