Melissa Van Dyk mentioned the results of the Diakonia Remixed survey in her blog post and raised some questions concerning terms for deacons. The task force would like to take the opportunity, in this blog post, to preview some of our work and hear your feedback regarding terms for deacons.
This two-page resource from Faith Formation Ministries offers ten tips to help deacons care for others, as well as themselves, as they live out their calling and serve their congregation and community through their diaconal ministry.
This webinar will examine and discuss the Diakonia Remixed (Office of Deacon Task Force) report to synod, a report that re-visions the diaconal calling and calls for greater participation of deacons in the life of the church, including its major assemblies.
Few churches would say they aren’t interested in sharing God’s heart for their community. This workbook provides those tools and resources that will help you imagine your community the way God sees it.
