In this book a deacon speaks from experience. In his lifetime, Harold Nichols was a deacon of 40 years' experience and conducted numerous training sessions for deacons in churches of the Philadelphia Baptist Association. This book outlines his work as he saw it. It covers the origin of the deacon, requisites and qualifications, organization, ordinances, worship, watchcare, the unchurched, training, relationships, finances, and the role of the deaconess. It includes letters and record cards for the deacon, a fellowship friend plan, and a zone visitation plan. Mr. Nichols was a committed Christian layman from the time he accepted Christ as a teenager through his years of membership in the Wissahickon and Roxborough Baptist Churches in Philadelphia. His experience also included serving as a church trustee, financial secretary, treasurer, member of the board of missions, and member of his state convention's board of managers.
