The 21st Century Deaconess

Meeting the Urban Challenge

Authored by Fran A. Jones, John L. McCoy D.Min.

In The 21st Century Deaconess: Meeting the Urban Challenge, Deaconess Fran A. Jones and Pastor John L. McCoy, D.Min. come together to share their wisdom and experience in addressing one of the toughest challenges facing churches today, meeting the needs of young women in a way that is practical, compassionate, godly driven, and spiritually significant. This text is thoughtful and honest in the way it discusses the tools needed for progress. Readers will come away with a deeper understanding of the real-life issues affecting young women in urban communities and an outline for how to meet the practical needs of young women. Jones and McCoy make sure that deaconesses, from a Titus 2 mindset, understand that the call to deaconess ministry should not be taken lightly and that it extends way beyond the communion table.
