This book emphasizes the practical issues facing the typical deacon. There he will find ideas that will help him better prepare for the challenge that awaits him in his own assembly.
Each chapter can serve as a basic study that the pastor will use to train the deacon committee for six weeks, studying one chapter per week.
Suggestions for topics to discuss and problems to resolve will assist him in his ministry of spiritual direction.
The author is himself a pastor of a large congregation. In addition to his pastoral ministry, he has taught at two Christian universities.
