Diakonia is a Greek word found more than 30 times in the New Testament. It is translated as service or ministry and it captures the Christian notion of service for the least of our brothers and sisters to which we are all called as followers of Christ. The Diakonia Christian Service Program is an opportunity to explore the many service and ministry opportunities of the Church and the wider community.
In a normal year freshman, sophomores, and juniors must fulfill 15 hours of service per year. In 2020-2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the requirement will be 4 service projects, with no hour requirement. Projects may be completed in-person or at home, in service of a charitable organization or person in need. Completed service projects will continue to be recorded in MobileServe at https://mobileserve.com/.
