In the apostle Paul's instructions to the church in Rome, he introduces Phoebe, a deacon of the church at Cenchreae, in Corinth. He tells the church to welcome her and offer her whatever help she needs. He spoke very highly of her and her work as a benefactor. Phoebe is known to have delivered Paul's epistle to the church at Rome. Her name means "bright and radiant". (Romans 16)
