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?

Dr. Marvin McMickle explores these issues and more in this practical resource for today's church leaders.
