Dynamic Deacons Seminar
By Aubrey Johnson
Equipping Current and Future Deacons for Greatness
About this Seminar
Dynamic Deacons provides a simple, straightforward look at the work of a deacon. The goal is to help you become more confident and effective as a leader. As a result, you will enjoy your job more, become better at it, and be less susceptible to burnout.  
Whether you are a veteran, rookie, or hopeful candidate, Dynamic Deacons will give you the knowledge and tools you need to succeed. If you aspire to become a deacon, this seminar 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, refining your character, and renewing your ministry. 
Session One deals with the role of a deacon. It explains what the job entails and why it is vitally important to the fulfillment of the church’s mission. Biblical deacons are not glorified gofers. They are God’s Champions.
Session 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 practical importance of each qualification will be considered. 
Session Three will focus on the responsibilities of a deacon. Deacons are men with a proven ability to get things done. Clarity, initiative, teamwork, and accountability are the keys to developing a track record of consistent success.  
Session Four will spotlight the relationships of a deacon. Four crucial relations form the circle-of-success for spiritual leaders. To maximize their ministries, deacons must make the most of these caring connections. 
Session Five will increase motivation for service by examining the rewards of a deacon. Though frequent flyer miles and cash back incentives are not available, God definitely has His own rewards program for those who serve well.
"Not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord" (Romans 9:11)
