North Texas Conference Deacon Gatherings
National Deacon Formation Events
Persons who are commissioned as deacons are offered the opportunity to attend a national provisional deacon formation event offered by the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry. The North Texas Conference recommends that provisional deacons attend at least one national deacon event before ordination to better understand the call of deacon and to prepare for ordination. For information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or the chair of the order, Rev. Patty Froehlich, at email@example.com.
Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston, Illinois hosts Deacon Dialogue for deacons and those considering becoming deacons. At the three-day weekend event, deacons make connections and gain insight to enhance their leadership ministries to connect the people of God to the needs of the world. Deacon Dialogue includes a candidacy workshop.
