Deacon Day @ Drew is an opportunity to explore the identity and call of the deacon and to become familiar with the Master of Arts in Ministry (M.A.M.) program at Drew Theological School. In the morning, participants will have an opportunity to take advantage of our Seminary Saturday offerings (choose between “Living in Solidarity with the Poor: Theologies of Downward Mobility” with Dr. Chris Boesel or “Soaking Prayer Ministry” with Rev. Dr. Stafford Miller).
In the afternoon Rev. Victoria Rebeck, Director of Deacon Ministry Development and Provisional Membership (Division of Ordained Ministry, UMC) will moderate a panel of deacons serving in diverse appointments to discuss the identity and call of the deacon, candidacy and ordination process, financial issues, making local church connections, and serving in appointments beyond the church.
