Newly updated for the revised Directory for Worship.

In this highly useful book, Earl S. Johnson, Jr., explores the role of the deacon in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). The author explains the freedom for churches to define the roles of deacons while also supplying many helpful suggestions. Johnson examines the ministry as it is described in sections of the Book of Order and analyzes how the word "deacon" is used in Scripture. In addition, Johnson provides historical information regarding the inclusion of women and offers innovative ways to incorporate the ministry of deacons into the larger ministry of the church. Fully updated based on the revised Directory for Worship, this book is invaluable for new deacons preparing for their roles, while also helping pastors and leaders who are training prospective deacons.
