A Diaconate that PRAYS Together, Stays Together!

Prayer is how we commune with God and it plays (or should play!) a huge role in our daily lives and in our relationships with others, as well as our work in His Kingdom. Here at Diaconal Ministries Canada, we want to encourage, equip and empower deacons to make prayer a regular part of their ministry.

They were pleased to hear what other deacons and ministry leaders had to say and one particular email came from Ada Kloet.

A Deacon's Work is Never Done!

Since a deacon's mandate is to “lead and equip the church to minister to its members and the world in a rich diversity of ministries, awaken compassion, demonstrate mercy, seek justice, and collaborate with God’s Spirit for the transformation of persons and communities,” can they ever really ‘take a break’??
