Item description for A Deacon's Heart: The New United Methodist Diaconate by Margaret Ann Crain & Jack L. Seymour...

A Deacon's Heart is a significant gift not only to The United Methodist Church but also to the larger ecumenical community. The diaconate is growing at a tremendous pace in many denominations around the world. In all communions that have chosen to establish a permanent diaconate, emphasis has been exerted in interpreting the meaning and influence of the new orders and offices to the total ministry of the Church. This book will take its place as an interpretive resource on the new deacon in The United Methodist Church. It will assist in understanding not only the vision of the deacon, but how the very nature of the diaconate can lead the Church in renewal.

Publishers Description
In volume offers insight and guidance regarding this new ministerial order both to those who are called into the diaconate, and those among whom they will minister. The book begins by locating the office of deacon within the larger United Methodist understanding the ministry of all God's people and of ordained ministers. Drawing on the stories of those whom God has called and ordained to the ministry of deacon, the authors portray the crucial link between the worship of the church and service to the world that is central to the office of deacon. The book concludes with answers to common questions asked by deacons and the churches in which their ministry takes place: Who pays for insurance? What about pensions? What responsibilities do deacons have to the congregations that hire them, and what to the conferences of which they are members?
