Diverse in gifts, unique in setting, committed to serving the Church and the world.


Who We Are

We are the Orders of Deacons and Diaconal Ministers of the Michigan Area of the United Methodist Church. We are God-bearers and bridge builders, fully reliant on the loving grace of God our Creator, the saving grace of Jesus Christ our Redeemer, and the empowering grace of the Holy Spirit our Sustainer to keep the promises we make to one another, to the Church, and to the world.  

Deacons are ordained clergy who are called to Word, Service, Compassion, and Justice.
