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.
