DIAKONIA offers an international and ecumenical community of diaconal friendship, connecting us in diversity and commonality. 
DIAKONIA broadens our worldview and deepens our sense of diaconal vocation.  
DIAKONIA reminds the church of God’s call to service, justice, compassion, and peace for creation, and assists us in living out our ministries in the world with vision and hope. 
The church is not the church without diakonia.
