The deacon serves as an extension of the pastor’s long arm of ministry in the local church. It is our pleasure to offer deacon training for your local congregation in a biblical, cost-effective format. A Deacon on Purpose is a short book, available at minimal cost, which guides a deacon body through the four biblical purposes of a deacon: (1) Lead by Example, (2) Serve the People, (3) Support the Pastor & Staff, and (4) Protect the Peace. The book is organized into six sessions, and is flexible for use in a variety of formats: 

  • Some pastors choose to walk their deacons through the book one session at a time over a six-week or six-month period. Six 5-7 minute videos are available at no charge to introduce each session.

  • Some deacon bodies organize a one or two day retreat during which they walk through the material together.

  • Dr. Wolfe is glad to personally come train your deacons, using the material, as his schedule permits.

A Deacon on Purpose is available at $1.50 each.
Introductory videos for each session are available...
