Deacon Check-In

“Iron sharpens iron, and
one man sharpens another.”

Proverbs 27:17

You are a part of a nearly 1000-man diaconate! But rarely, if ever, it feels like that. 

Whether it’s dealing with normal diaconal stuff or the added difficulties of a covid or post-covid normal, it’s easy to feel like you are on your own or it’s just a couple of you trying to make things work. Who will take care of the local deacon? Who will serve those who serve?
 
To that end, the CDM is working to create new opportunities for training and encouragement. We are beginning an effort we are calling, Deacon Check-In.  The goal is to have two deacons check in with each other for an occasional short time of conversation and prayer.
Currently, we are thinking about twice a year having a Deacon Check-In month to help initiate a 20-30 minute call between men. But we’ll see how things go after getting feedback.
 
For now, all you need to do is sign up below. We’ll do the rest. You will hear from us this summer with the information for your first Deacon Check-In. If this sounds like something you are willing to try, sign up below. No long term commitments are necessary. We’ll be flexible as things get going. You may be blessed. You may really bless one of your brothers.

David Nakhla, Administrator for the Committee on Diaconal Ministries
 
The next “Deacon Check-In” will be held in February, 2022.
