Deacons Training

ABOUT THE SERIES

In the Deacons Training series, we cover a range of topics to provide help and insight for deacons as they work together with the elders in leading God’s people. It is aimed at equipping deacons with both the practical insight and tools to effectively serve and lead within their local congregations.

Who is the series for?

The Deacons Training is intended for those that both currently fulfil the role of a deacon within the local church body and those that desire to serve within this leadership role. The short videos are designed to promote further reflection and group discussion where appropriate. For this reason, we recommend watching them in small groups or as a leadership team.

The series is accompanied by a downloadable workbook for facilitators and those working through the series.

Apostles lay the foundations, but in many ways deacons are like pillars in the church – providing strength and support.

SESSIONS

If we are to build the church in a way that glorifies Jesus, we need to build His way. A look at our unique callings.

'Deacon' is a word that derives from the Greek word for 'servant'. But is that all a deacon is?

We look at the expectations of deacons and the tension of using people where they're gifted versus where they're needed.

Deacons need to be faithful, available, submissive and teachable, but what does this mean practically?

As the Biblical qualifications for deacons relate to character not gifting, deacons set the example and should model openness and accountability.

Unpacking the ‘cost’ of being a deacon and how to support one another in challenging times

The crucial part unity plays within a team and the importance of laying down our plans and ambitions for the greater church.

Each of us has been gifted by God to serve the church. We need to step out and set the example of being mighty men and women of faith!

Qualities that rest on a deacon within the life of the church and the importance of walking in humility.
