About This Event

As the 2019 Churchwide Assembly winds down and Deacons will now be Ordained in Word and Service – we  need to gather together to see what this looks like for the Deacon roster!

The goals of this Summit are:

  • To create a shared understanding and commitment to diakonia
  • Pulling our histories together and weaving a new ministry/history
  • Shared Biblical story – Word and Service, what grounds us?
  • Filling our wells/bowls for service to others -Spiritual practices
  • Sharing symbols of Diakonia

Registration fee is $75 and includes on-site housing and meals. If you opt to stay at a local hotel, the registration fee is still $75 as this is being subsidized by regional funds.
Travel reimbursement for expenses over $100 can be requested, up to $300. Send requests to Deacon Chelle Huth at chuth@uls.edu.
