Work together with AED in strengthening diaconal ministry
The Association for Episcopal Deacons is a membership-funded association of persons and dioceses within The Episcopal Church whose mission is to increase participation and involvement of all baptized persons in Christ's diaconal ministry, especially by promoting and supporting the diaconate.
We provide resources, materials and connections at no cost, in thanks to generous contributions from individual & diocesan members. Membership is open to anyone - lay or ordained, from any denomination, who are interested in strengthening diaconal ministry.
"Once I joined AED I realized just how valuable this community is to the growth of the diaconate and all servant ministry. Thanks!"
