Diakonia Program Update

July 13, 2017

When I attended the Grand Canyon Synod Assembly, I learned about the Diakonia Program and wanted to share this information with those who are interested in increasing their Christian faith and knowledge and to explore one’s calling to follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ to serve others. ~ Kim Kennedy 

Program Overview: Diakonia is a two-year process of spiritual formation and theological education for baptized members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America or anyone wishing in good faith to study these teachings.

This process occurs in three basic ways:

  • By thorough grounding in practical, systematic, historical, and biblical theology.
  • By identifying particular skills and aptitudes in ministry, and encouraging their use in daily life.
  • By providing spiritual growth through worship, retreats, and a supportive community of students, mentors, and instructors.

The purpose of the Diakonia program is to provide participants the opportunity to discover their God-given gifts, and strengthen their faith and their abilities. Through the Diakonia educational experience, students’ understanding of theology and their relationship to God are allowed to blossom and bear fruit as a light of Christ in society.

The Diakonia curriculum consists of twelve courses, six per academic year, all graded on a pass-fail basis. Each course lasts five weeks, with a three-hour classroom session each week. All of the courses are introductory in nature, and each includes weekly readings and assignments. Typically, students average approximately three to five hours of study per week in addition to class time.  Diakonia emphasizes the baptismal vocation of all Christians to serve as did our Lord Jesus.

For a full description of the program, go to http://www.diakoniausa.org.

Tuition: Tuition is $360 per year (for the two-year program), or $60 per course. Students may pay the total upfront or pay per course, with $60 due the first day of each course. Books and materials generally do not exceed $30 per course, and students have the option of purchasing used books or, in many cases, borrowing them.

Fees: A non-refundable registration fee of $25 is required at the time of registration. An additional fee at the conclusion of the program covers graduation expenses, including the presentation of a commemorative Diakonia cross.

Scholarships: Scholarships are available. Discuss your needs with your congregation pastor.
