This project sought to inform the men at First Baptist Church about what it means to serve as a deacon in the church. Chapter 1 introduces First Baptist Church of Montverde and the compelling need for this project. Chapter 2 provides the biblical and theological basis for shared leadership and examples of God’s choice to join leaders together to accomplish His will. Chapter 3 identifies five essential qualities for successful shared leadership that are affirmed in writings from a spectrum of Christian traditions. Chapter 4 describes the public sermons, the curriculum, and the actual operation of the class for educating the men about what it means to serve as a deacon. Chapter 5 analyzes and evaluates the results of the project and offers both theological and personal reflection on the project.
