What is Diaconal Service?

Icon Heading

Diaconal service, or “service ministry,” is not something that we ‘do.’ It is what happens when someone’s deep desire to serve Christ comes to life.

The LDA believes that servant ministry can happen anywhere, in any setting. Our Deaconesses and Deacons serve in hundreds of different settings. —hospitals, schools, dance studios, and courtrooms; but servant ministry —also called diakonia— does not focus on what we do with our days, but how we serve others as we live them.
