Diakonia Program


“The Teacher is here and is calling for you”

John 11:28 says “The Teacher is here and is calling for you.” This wonderful quote of Martha’s is just after she says to Jesus, “Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God.” She then goes to find her sister, Mary.

Is the Teacher calling you?

Are you looking for a connection with God but haven’t found one? Are you seeking to enter into loving intimacy and ever-deepening relationship with God?

basin towelPerhaps the answer is Diakonia.

Diakonia gives you time with God through prayer, a series of courses, and opportunities for practical ministry. It is more than just a course of study, it is a chance to listen with your heart and soul too.  It is an opportunity to grow spiritually.

The class sessions, workshops and retreats will give you an opportunity to meet with brothers and sisters in Christ to grow spiritually and learn about the good news of Jesus Christ.

diakonia™ is a two-year education and faith formation program for laity. It emphasizes the vocation of all Christians to serve as Christ has served us. This program is sponsored by the  ELCA.  Classes are also taught in the Southeast Pennsylvania Synod, New Jersey Synod, Northern Illinois Synod and other Synods.
