Life & Work of Deacons Conferences
Our Life & Work of Deacons conferences are two-day online events open to all deacons and deacon supporters. Meetings are usually Fridays, 7-9 pm Eastern and Saturdays, Noon-3 pm Eastern. A portion of the time we’ll focus on the inner life of a deacon – who we are as deacons, and what we need to thrive. The other portion we’ll focus on the work of the deacon – what we do!
There is a small charge to attend, or it's free with an automatic renewal annual membership or automatic renewal donation.
