Pre-Deaconess Studies Program
Christian women serving as deaconesses reach out to individuals in spiritual and physical need through acts of mercy, service and ministry. Depending on their gifts and calling, they may provide spiritual care, teach God’s Word, administer programs, work in social service or assist in a variety of other ministry tasks. Deaconesses frequently serve in congregations, hospitals, welfare institutions, college campuses, inner cities, foreign missions, and in other places where their ministry of service is needed. The Pre-Deaconess Studies Program equips women for seminary-level diaconal training through instruction in at least one biblical language and through other courses that will prepare them for graduate theological education.
