Overview

Jesus came to deacon (Mark 10:45; Rom. 15:8). And the greatest among us will be deacons (Mark 10:43). It’s not a bad label to wear, apparently. There should be nothing unspiritual about a deacon. What about your church? Do you officially recognize anyone as a deacon? Doing so publicly holds forth models of Christian love and service.

In this issue of the 9Marks Journal, Jamie Dunlop and Benjamin Merkle explore the biblical foundations of the office, and Matt Schmucker, Phil Newton, and John Ingold discuss how we can help deacons in our churches live up to their biblical calling.
