Our Graduates

Turning Faith into Action

Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

— Matthew 28:16-20 NIV

In the Gospel of Mathew, Jesus calls us to go forward in faith and action, making disciples of all nations. Students and graduates of Diakonia respond to this great commission in a variety of ways.

Based on their spiritual gifts, they may apply personal ministry to administration or lay teaching; the pursuit of social justice; environmental stewardship; or service to the youth or the elderly. Living out their Baptismal vocations, they seek to be God’s Light in this world, bearing witness to Christ in word and deed.

Some Diakonia graduates feel called to continue their theological education as seminarians and go on to become ordained pastors and rostered leaders.
