The ministry of deacons and other ministry leaders is greatly enhanced when expectations are clearly communicated. Below is a list of deacon ministry descriptions that I put together in community with the deacons involved.

Spiritual Formation

Bible classes offer a good opportunity for spiritual formation. Below is a link to an adult curriculum plan that I put together after reading Walter Brueggemann’s book The Creative Word: Canon as a Model for Biblical Education and having discussions with a team of three other church leaders.

Skyline Connect

Skyline Connect is a survey I prepared to encourage ministry involvement among the Skyline members.  The survey was distributed primarily by email but hard copies were provided for those unfamiliar with computers.

To help the church move from a “no budget” policy to having an organized spending plan, I designed in cooperation with a ministry assistant a new general ledger accounting system. Linked below is an Administering to Honor brochure designed to help the congregation think of church finances in terms of worship. The Vision Sunday Handouts were designed to encourage a missional self-awareness of Skyline members.
