The Deacon’s Path

April 7, 2014 - June 2, 2014


Mon, Apr 7, 2014 to Mon, Jun 2, 2014
The Rev. Dcn. Susanne Watson Epting
Registration Deadline: Fri, Apr 4, 2014
CEUs: 2

This continuing education experience will provide an opportunity to reflect on our vocation; what we’ve learned and where we’re still headed in ministry. We’ll consider vocational development in  the form of personal assessment of our lives in ministry.  Peer mentoring means that we’ll be reflecting with other participants, receiving feedback, ideas and affirmation from them.   In online courses, participants meet others from many geographical areas and ministry backgrounds.  As they share diaconal hearts, prophetic and interpretive roles, and serve as animators of the diakonia of all believers, it’s good to compare notes, share learning plans, and take time to renew commitments.  People who have been ordained for a while often take heart to hear the fresh perspectives of those in formation, and those in formation benefit by some of the mentoring that occurs from more experienced deacons.  Class size is limited to 20.
