Mission

Preparing and supporting the whole people of God in Christ's call to serve.

As the LDA:

  1. We form, send, and nurture communities of deaconesses and deacons in a Lutheran context to serve in all walks of life.
  2. We value ecumenism in our Christian call to serve.
  3. We energize people to serve among and advocate for all affected by brokenness; and seek to restore wholeness for all creation.

Vision

Following Christ, people of God serve those across the street and around the world.
