Training
Deacon training can take many forms:

  • a retreat for your deacons, maybe even inviting neighboring congregations
  • a day of workshops on a variety of topics
  • training while people are already gathered at District Conference or other event.

The denominational deacon ministry offers many options, and will be happy to work with you to meet the time frame and training goals you have in mind.

Not sure what training you’d like to have? Take a moment to review the current workshop offerings. Need training on something not on the list? We’ll see if we can put a program together.

Consultation
Maybe the idea of deacon training is too far down the road for you. Maybe you don’t even have a deacon ministry in your congregation and are wondering how to or if you should start one. Or perhaps your deacons are burned out but none of the younger members are willing to answer the call—what then? The deacon ministry also offers consultants to help you work through these issues and develop an energetic, spirit-filled deacon ministry in your church.
