Deacons play an important role in the functioning and health of the local church. The deacon’s responsibilities and services can help or hinder the health of the congregation. This course will cover the biblical qualifications and responsibilities for deacon ministry. The course will also cover challenges that deacons and pastors face in the area of communication and ministry. Although the principles taught in the course will have a slant toward deacons in African-American Baptist churches, these principles can be applied to deacons of every church context, regardless of race, or region of the country.
Instructors: Dr. Lonnie Wesley III
