Registration Opens Today for National Diaconal Summit

David Nakhla

Deacons, come one, come all! Registration opens today (February 1, 2017) for the OPC's third national diaconal summit! We urge all deacons and deacons-in-training to make plans now to attend Diaconal Summit III, to be held June 15-17, 2017, on the campus of Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. The OPC's next national diaconal summit will not be scheduled until 2022, so don’t miss out on this year's special opportunity to network with deacons from all corners of the OPC, participate in mutual encouragement, and receive solid diaconal training.

Our speaker will be Dr. David Apple, Director of Mercy Ministries at Tenth Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and author of the book, Not Just a Soup Kitchen: How Mercy Ministry in the Local Church Transforms Us All. Dr. Apple will challenge us to follow the example of our savior, Jesus Christ, the greatest deacon of all, in serving the needy - body and soul. His talks will include practical aspects of diaconal ministry, sources of encouragement for our labors, and how to make the most of the Presbyterian network of deacons in the OPC.

All Expenses Paid Except Travel

Deacons, deacons-in-training, elders, ministers, and members of the OPC are welcome to attend! The Committee on Diaconal Ministries covers all conference costs except travel! There is a conference fee of $125 for those outside the OPC.

Register Now!

The brochure and registration form are available at

We hope to see you there!
