Dynamic Deacons: Champions of Christ's Church Kindle Edition
The book is divided into five chapters. Chapter One deals with the role of a deacon. It explains what the job entails and why it is vital to the fulfillment of the church’s mission. No one can do more to brighten the church’s future than those who devote their lives to supporting her shepherds.
Chapter Two takes a look at the requirements of a deacon. Ten benchmarks of spiritual maturity must be attained to serve in this special capacity. The meaning and importance of each qualification will be considered.
In Chapter Three, the focus will be on the responsibilities of a deacon. Deacons are men with a proven ability to get things done. Through clarity, initiative, teamwork, and accountability, they develop a track record of consistent success. Dynamic deacons always find a way forward.
The relationships of a deacon take center stage in Chapter Four. Four crucial associations form the circle of success for spiritual leaders. Learn how to leverage these connections to improve your ministry.
Finally, Chapter Five builds motivation for service by examining the rewards of a deacon. Though frequent flyer miles and cash back incentives are not available, God definitely has a rewards program for those who serve well.
Whether you are a veteran, rookie, or hopeful candidate, Dynamic Deacons will give you the working knowledge you need to succeed.
If you aspire to become a deacon, this book will provide you with a clear path for preparation. If you are a newly appointed deacon, it will help you sprint out of the starting gate and make the most of your early days. If you are an experienced deacon, you will find it useful for reflecting on your calling and renewing your ministry.

In Aubrey’s latest book, he has published much of the material from his seminar so that all can reap the blessings from his research and training. The first chapter seeks to define the role of a deacon. He does more than define terms or provide lists; he does some great comparison work. He highlights the difference between the role of a deacon and the role of an elder. He also notes the perspective of a deacon. Deacons should see themselves like David’s mighty men or Aaron or Hur. He gives modern day examples of the correct mindset for a deacon; like present day first-responders.
In chapters 2 and 3, he provides probably the best chapters ever on the requirements for a deacon. He goes through the list of character traits that a deacon needs. What I like about this section is the practicality of it. This chapter could be given to prospective men that are close to meeting the requirements but just need some more teaching to make certain life changes. Chapter 3 is a great job description for a deacon. Every church eldership should pass this book to every deacon in their congregation.
Chapter 4 deals with the various relationships that a deacon has in life, which includes his God, his marriage, and the elders. His work on the deacon’s interaction with the elders is superb. Too often deacons and elders can create conflictual relationships with one another. I love how Aubrey teaches the truth. Deacons are to be a blessing to the elders, not a frustration. In chapter 5, the author gives some motivation to the deacons. A job well done for the Lord is always worth it.
This is an excellent book for deacons and elders. It would be wise for congregations to give this book as a gift to every deacon in the church.
