a “deaconess of the church at Cenchrea,” the port of Corinth

She was probably the bearer of Paul’s epistle to the Romans.

Paul commended her to the Christians at Rome.

I commend to you Phoebe our sister, who is a servant of the church in Cenchrea, that you may receive her in the Lord in a manner worthy of the saints, and assist her in whatever business she has need of you; for indeed she has been a helper of many and of myself also. —Romans 16:1-2 NKJV
