Diocese of Atlanta Parish Request for Deacon
Please answer the following questions to help us in matching available deacons to parish needs as much as possible.
Please list the name and location of parish or ministry
Please add name of rector or priest in charge
Goals for Deacon's leadership in your community
What are your goals for the deacon’s leadership in your parish (ministry)? Please keep in mind that a deacon’s tenure is no more than three years. A fourth year may be granted only if it is mission critical. Your goal for this period may include a type of ministry (prison, food pantry, etc.) you want started or supported, or may be related to more general parish support (re-invigorating outreach, increased ties to surrounding community, etc.). Goals that clearly reflect the call described in the Examination of a Deacon (BCP 543) will rate higher consideration.
Support for the Deacon in your community
While deacons are non-stipendary, Continuing Education, mileage, and other expenses are typically provided. Please confirm that your community can budget and provide for this.
Clergy and community's past history with deacons.
Please list past experience with deacons placed with the community and the clergy person in charge.
Weekly Time Expectations of the Deacon
Please keep in mind that many deacons have full-time positions in the world that inform their ministry in the church.
