A Servants Hand “A Deacon’s Handbook”


This handbook has been put together with the intent of equipping and educating men who have been chosen to serve in the office of a deacon here at the Saint Matthews Baptist Church. There are set parameters and instructions that have been given to us by the Holy Word of God to inform us (the church) on how to choose a deacon, the qualifications of a deacon, the duties of a deacon, and the character of a deacon. Those of you that are reading this handbook obviously are doing so because you have been chosen either as a deacon in training or already serve as a deacon at the St. Matthews Baptist Church, and due to this are expected to not only be a hearer but a doer of that which is written therein.
