ETS in partnership with Detroit area churches in introducing a new program that can help your ministry. This program is designed for churches that consider competent Deacon Ministry essential to the success of their ministry. We are mindful that the term "Deacon" is used differently in various denominations. Those interested in our course should be aware of what the educational and ordination requirements for a Deacon are in their own denomination.
Pastoral support and membership care are key roles for the New Testament Deacon. During an intensive 12 week course of study, the Deacon will be exposed to a broad spectrum of topics that will affirm and reaffirm this important ministry. The program will include a total of 20 hours of classroom instruction on Thursday evenings (6:30pm to 8:00pm) over a 12-week period from February 24 thru June 2, 2011.
Instructors are Dr. Kenneth E. Harris, Senior Pastor of Detroit Baptist Temple and ETS Professor of Urban Ministry and Biblical Studies along with Dr. Bertram L. Marks, Esq., Senior Pastor of First Community Baptist
Church and ETS alumnus (DMin).
