Diakonia provides a spiritual journey for those who wish to understand more fully their call to minister in their daily lives.

Our mission is to engage in faith formation to equip disciples to live out their baptismal call in faithful community.

Diakonia classes are held virtually once a week for two years during the school year. Classes cover such topics as the Bible, Christian Doctrine, Christian Ethics, Church and Society, and others. Together, students and teachers will discover the richness and depth of God’s word as revealed through these different disciplines.
