My heartfelt burden is to help deacons get out of the boardroom or the building-maintenance mentality and into he people-serving mentality. Deacons, as the New Testament teaches and as some of the sixteenth-century reformers discovered, are to be involved in a compassionate ministry of caring for the poor and needy. The deacon's ministry, therefore, is one that no Christ-centered, New Testament church can ever afford to neglect. Christians today must understand the absolute necessity for and vital importance of New Testament deacons to the local churches are cared for in a thoroughly Christian manner. This is a matter dear to the heart of God.
