© the diakonia™ program 2011 “We are all called to serve.  We are all called to bear witness to the gospel.  But it can be very challenging to discern exactly HOW to serve.  For those adults in our congregations who are engaged in a process of looking for new ways to live out their baptismal calling, one outstanding resource is the 'Diakonia' program.  Through a two-year course of study, prayer, and growing faith friendships, 'Diakonia' has led dozens of dedicated Christians to a deeper engagement with faith and life."
