    Is there a certain curriculum you use to helping train your Deacons. Of course, I know the Bible, but I was wondering if there is something that already has a lesson plan made up already.
    Thanks
    Joe

    Go on the internet and look up The Baptist Deacon by Dr. Robert Naylor, written in 1955

    The book was given to my father by his church when he was ordained in the late 1950s. I have his copy.

    The same book was also given to newly-ordained deacons by my my church. It ordained me in 1967.

    A new printing of the book came out in 1999 by B & H Publishing.

    At the time, the book was considered the definitive writing on deacons.

    We're supposed to get training?!?!?! I got nada, and every time something along these lines is mentioned, "We tried that before and it didn't work out."

    Thanks Salty and Tom--great information. Tom, I ordered the book today, looking forward to reading it.
    Tater and Trotter, I'm sorry. Try looking at some of those sites listed above and see what you can do with it.
    Have a good Lord's Day preaching tomorrow!

    I didn't go to any deacon training classes, either. We were just given the book and told to read it.

    Even so, my view of the role of deacons is quite different from what I perceived among the deacons in my church of 40-plus years ago.
