The idea of the deaconess is not new. There were deaconess in the New Testament church, in the churches of the first several centuries, and there are deaconesses in today’s churches. She was called the assistant or minister to deacons. Paul praised the women in his letters. He did not refer to gender when he wrote to the churches of Rome (Rom 12:1-8) and Corinth. (I Cor. 12L1-31) about the gift they may have been given, the service expected of them, and the oneness of the church as the body of Christ.
