The Association for Episcopal Deacons’ website has posted their work on ‘Deacon competencies’ – similar to what I (your Ed) was working on with the Exeter Deacons’ Steering Group for Ministry Division in this country. It’s fascinating to see the work they have done, and to compare the documents. See ours on this blog here, where they are called ‘dispositions’.
Over the past few years the Vocational Development and Life Long Learning Task Force of AED had been charged with shaping a document that would outline the areas of competency used in successful Diaconal Formation Programs.
