The Diakonos Ministry Lectures recognize and honor someone who has devoted him or herself to serving Christ through service to others. The Diakonos Award was created in honor of those who have served and blessed humanity in tremendous ways, without regard for praise or human recognition. The name of the lectures comes from the Greek word, “diakonos.” The word is sometimes translated as “deacon” in a specific formal sense. It is also translated as “minister” or “servant” when it is used in reference to those who serve the cause of Christ outside any “official” position. Applicable example are Epaphras, whose Paul commends as a “beloved fellow servant who is a faithful minister/servant of Christ on your behalf” )Colosiians 1:7); and Phoebe, who Paul praises as “our sister…who is a minister/srvant of the church in Cenchrea…” (Romans 16:1).
