What is the Greek phrase meaning "to serve others."

The Greek term you are looking for from the New Testament is διακονία (you could spell it "diakonia" transliterated into the English alphabet). It essentially means to serve others. This is the word that is used when Jesus talks about being a servant; it is also used by the Apostle Paul in his letters to describe the attitude of service.

I think you are looking for the word "doulos." It refers to a bondservant, one who is devoted to another and who puts aside his own interests. It is often used to refer to those whose service is used by Christ in extending and advancing his cause in the world.
