Spiritually healthy deacons are vital for a spiritually healthy church. Effective deacon ministry enhanced the explosive growth in the early church. Yet today, so very few deacons are prepared for effective ministry and many churches suffer, Leading By Serving shares Scriptural teaching about this important office and offers practical help and guidance. Included are several testimonies from men about their experience as a deacon and encouragement to other deacons. This book will help prepare prospective deacons and is an encouragement and sheds light on effective ministry for current deacons.
“If you think about it, everything done in a church’s congregation revolves around the performance of a deacon because the role of a deacon is principally one of service. As deacons perform in their official capacity of service, the rest of the congregation can extend that level and quality of service. I want deacons to understand the crucial role they play in their congregation. Though many resources are available for pastors, I discovered very few for deacons. My prayer is that this book will help fill the gap.” – Greg Burdine

“Greg has done a wonderful job with Leading By Serving. I had high expectations for this work and I’m not disappointed. It is instructive, helpful, encouraging, and practical. The deacon testimonials at the end of each chapter Len credibility to Greg’s wise and structured thoughts about church leadership. You will find this book to be both scholarly and easy to read and it is my blessing to recommend it to you.“ … -Tim Adrian, pastor of Westside Baptist Church (Hutchinson, KS), President of Baptist Bible Fellowship International (2021)
