This handbook is based on biblical principles counsels from the writings of Ellen G. White and the Seventh-day Adventist Church Manual. It is hoped that this guide will help deacons deaconesses and clergy in planning and implementing activities that support the local church and enhance the preaching of the gospel-the original purpose of establishment of deacons and deaconesses in the early church.
Much of this handbook deals with techniques and procedures that guide and counsel deacons and deaconesses in the performance of their ministry. But ministry itself is more than techniques and procedures; it is to build an abiding relationship with our Lord ensure the glory of His name within the fellowship of the church and to fulfill our Lord’s wish for His church: “Let all things be done decently and in order” (1 Cor 14:40).
May this handbook be a blessing to all deacons and deaconesses and strengthen their ministry so that “the word of God” may “spread and the number of disciples” multiply “greatly” (Acts 6:7).
