Although there is much confusion regarding the biblical description of their job, deacons are essential in maintaining the health of the church. What is their God-given role in a local congregation and how do they relate to the global mission of the church?

In this short book, Matt Smethurst explains that deacons are model servants called to meet tangible needs, organize and mobilize acts of service, preserve the unity of the flock, and support the ministry of the elders. Clarifying common misunderstandings, Smethurst offers practical guidance for developing deacons and helping churches flourish.
