“It’s not just about church. It’s about life.”

diakonia™ is a lay education program in the Greater Milwaukee Synod and other synods around the ELCA that provides a spiritual journey to those who wish to understand more fully their call to minister in the church and in the world.

diakonia™ meets once each week for two years during the school year. Classes cover such topics as the Bible, Christian Doctrine, Christian Ethics, Church and Society, and others. Together, students and teachers will discover the richness and depth of God’s word as revealed through these different disciplines.
