Archdeacon and Deacon Director Conference
Growing the Diaconate: Tools for Discernment and Recruitment
Thursday evening, March 10 - Saturday evening, March 12, 2022
Many involved in deacon supervision have told AED that there is a post-COVID push for diaconal recruitment in their diocese. What tools are others using to successfully identify diaconal vocations? Experienced practitioners will share resources, plus ample time for Open Space Technology discussions on deacon supervision topics of YOUR choice.
This long-standing AED favorite is geared to the needs of archdeacons, deacon directors, and anyone interested in enriching, renewing or reviving their diaconal program.
A3D Conference Program Registration includes:
Archdeacon 101 Workshop
Saturday, April 9, 2022
Registration: $40 (opens February 14)
Join experienced deacon supervisors who can help you shine in your new role. This workshop is also valuable for those who need a refresher or to revamp a job description. Topics covered: creating a job description; planning your budget (or how to advocate for one); models of diaconal pastoral care; and structuring the unique supports deacons need.
Essential resources will be shared, including an in-depth review of AED’s Diaconal Competencies, which are fast becoming the gold standard for diaconal formation practices. We will also cover deploying deacons and creating continuing education guidelines. Templates for these tasks will be distributed.
