Order of Deacons in the UMOI Conference

This year the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry of The United Methodist Church, in concert with Conferences across the denomination, is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Order of Deacons. Established in 1996, deacons are called to the ministry of serving those on the margins of society “to witness to the Word in their words and actions, and to embody and lead the community’s service in the world for the sake of enacting God’s compassion and justice.”

The Oregon-Idaho Conference Order of Deacon is honoring its members through various videos and resources which will be made available on this website soon. Please bookmark this page for more information!
