Diaconal Ministry

The Diaconal Ministries Team (DMC) of Classis Grand Rapids South is committed to intentionally and effectively carrying out the work our Lord has called us to do through diaconal ministries in our churches and our communities.

The DMT does this by enhancing the work of classis deacons through providing opportunities and resources for ministry, outreach, encouragement, education, training, and support.

The committee also provides opportunities for churches to work together in outreach ministry.
