2021 Mission Grants
Since 2004, The Deaconess Community has granted over $2 million to ministries around the world who demonstrate:
- A Gospel centered purpose that proclaims and furthers the reign of God among us;
- A prophetic diakonia that commits itself to risk taking and innovative service;
- Cooperative partnerships that invite participation, bridge divisions, and accompany others in mission;
Inclusivity in mission that affirms the individual gifts of all people;
- Stewardship that respects God’s gifts of time, talents, and resources.
Giving thanks for what more we can do together, we commit to partnering with our 2020 Grant Recipients as we work for justice and flourishing of all God’s Creation.
