The Society of Deacons
The Society of Deacons is charged with living as the hands and feet of Christ in the world through Word, Service, Sacrament, Compassion and Justice. From the earliest days of the church, Deacons were called and set apart for the ministry of Love, Justice, and Service and for connecting the church with the most needy, neglected, and marginalized among the children of God. This ministry grows out of the Wesleyan passion for social holiness and ministry among the poor. It is the Deacons, in both person and function, whose distinctive ministry is to embody, articulate, and lead the whole people of God in its servant ministry.
