D 100 Diaconal Studies

One weekend to review of the history and development of the Diaconate, looking at the first centuries of the church, and the changes seen in this and other denominations, from that time to the present. This session will also explore the various areas of Diaconal ministry, the call of all Christians to serve others and the role of the Diaconate in that call, how to look at issues for the application of Christian belief and assistance, seeing the deacon as a bridge between the church and the world.
