Romans 16:1 tells us she was a deacon in the early church

Phoebe was a very trusted Christian missionary.  Church meetings were held in her home in Cenchreae.  Paul said she was a deacon in the church and a patron of many.  Because she was so trustworthy, the apostle Paul asked her to deliver a letter to the Roman church (Romans 16:1-2.)  She was a very important Christian in the early church.
