Diakonia: Featured Instructor: Rev.Mark Williamson

Instructor for Lutheran Creeds & confessions
2019 Dates: Jan 24, 31 and Feb. 7, 14, 21

“I am pastor of Grace Lutheran Church in Dodgeville. I believe teaching to be one of my spiritual gifts. Diakonia is a great way to offer this gift for the building up of God’s church. Also, having a local synod-based program like Diakonia allows learners from around the area who want to engage core resources of the faith at a deeper level to do so, while helping us focus our energies at the congregational level on faith formation for newcomers and inquirers. My hope for the students is that they will experience wonder and delight in the Word of God, grow as friends brought together by the Spirit, and be equipped for ministry in their local communities.”
