Archdeacons

ECMN’s archdeacons help extend the reach of the bishop in the nurture and care for the community of deacons, raise the profile of the diaconate around the diocese, advise on matters related to forming and deploying our deacons, assist with deacon placement and transitions, and visit congregations to represent and educate about the order of deacons.
