Deacons in Today's Black Baptist Church

Deacons in Today's Black Baptist Church

Description

What does it mean to be a deacon in the black Baptist church today? What personal qualities should a candidate for deacon possess? What does the ministry entail? What relationship should exist between the pastor and deacons? What does Scripture say about the origins of the office of the deacon? How has the historical context of being black and Baptist in American influenced the evolution of that office? How do we fulfill the scriptural purposes of a deacon ministry in our local black Baptist churches today? Rev. Dr. Marvin McMickle explores these issues and more in this practical resource for today’s church leaders.
