Product 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.

    I've read many Deacon manuals from many viewpoints and I find this to be the most Biblically sound of them all. This Pastor, along with his many decades of service to his congregation, surveyed many other Pastors, Pastor Councils, and many others sources to put together a manual I'm sure I will share and also purchase for any Deacons in training that I'm blessed to be responsible for training. I say this realizing all black Baptist Churches tend to be autonomous so not all parts of this book will be in agreement will all Pastors but the majority of this book should apply to all.
