RENEWING THE MALE AND FEMALE DIACONATE IN THE ORTHODOX CHURCH
This conference will examine the theology, history, and purpose of the diaconate, both male and female. It will include four sessions: the present state of the diaconate; ways men and women are engaged in diaconal service today; the current challenges and future possibilities of the diaconate; and the opportunities to engage with both clergy and faithful on rejuvenation of the male and female diaconate for the building up of the body of Christ.
