FLORIDA DEACON'S FELLOWSHIP

The Florida Deacons Fellowship exists to serve the servants of the church by promoting greater cooperation among Deacons in Florida.

 

WHAT IS THE FLORIDA DEACONS FELLOWSHIP

We are a group of (mostly) PCA deacons and pastors from a variety different churches who share the simple conviction that we need each other. The unhealthy tendency is for Deacons from different churches is to do their work in isolation, but far greater opportunity exists when Deacons work together. 

 

Accordingly, we want to encourage Deacons (beginning in Florida) to expand their horizons when it comes to creative collaboration for the sake of increased fruitfulness in the work of service to which God has called us.

HISTORY

 

We began in 2011 by gathering together for breakfast to fellowship, share, and pray for one another. At that time we were made up of deacons and elders from churches in Central Florida Presbytery. By the Spring of that year we began The FDF Big Event which became an annual event hosted at the campus of RTS-Orlando. We also began inviting churches throughout the state of Florida to participate. Each year we featured a speaker who had particular influence and experience with mercy initiates. They are as follows:

2011 Organizing for Disaster Response

Curt Moore- MNA Disaster Response

2012 Mandate and Model for Mercy Ministry

Mo Leverett- Founder Desire Street and Rebirth Ministries

2014 Connecting to Serve
