by Allen Garard and Mark Garard

Overview
This book is about the church office of the deacon.
Description
This book digs deep into the biblical office of the deacon by exploring the person, nature, and function of the deacon. Because the deacon is an officer in Christ's church, it must function according to His intentions as laid out in His Word. While we primarily examine the explicit details, we find that the implicit details are also helpful as we shape our understanding of the person and work of the office.
