We Are The LDA
Preparing and supporting the whole people of God in Christ's call to serve.
As the LDA:
- We form, send, and nurture communities of deaconesses and deacons in a Lutheran context to serve in all walks of life.
- We value ecumenism in our Christian call to serve.
- We energize people to serve among and advocate for all affected by brokenness; and seek to restore wholeness for all creation.
Following Christ, people of God serve those across the street and around the world.
