How They Serve and Strengthen the Church

Written by Matt Smethurst

“Smethurst’s concise manifesto and practical manual succeeds in highlighting the glory of the office of deacon. This is not a dry, theoretical treatise but a clear and cogent call to recognize God’s irreplaceable gift of the diaconal ministry.” - Cornelis Van Dam, Emeritus Professor of Old Testament, Canadian Reformed Theological Seminary; author, The Deacon

“Deacons have been the object of jokes for years―or worse, ignored. I love how Smethurst creatively fleshes out both the historical and biblical context of this important ministry―then presses into practical application. Use this crucial book to embrace and equip those called by God to serve as deacons.” -Mark Dance, Former Executive Editor, Deacon Magazine

“It is uncommon to find great, biblical, clear, and insightful content packaged in a small book. This is one of those occurrences. Today’s church needs this teaching urgently.”
-Miguel Núñez, Senior Pastor, International Baptist Church of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

“Dear reader, this is an excellent book! It is more interesting and important than you probably assume. You think I just have to say this because this is a blurb? Take a moment, open to chapter 1, and read the first page―just the first page!―then come back to this blurb. There are lots of other pages that good! You should buy the book now and read it. Go on and get some more copies, and get people studying it at your church. They will be encouraged and your church will be helped to flourish!”-Mark Dever, Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC
