In 1996, the General Conference of the United Methodist Church voted to create a permanent diaconate. This year, we celebrate the 25th anniversary of this full and equal order. On this page, we feature various resources that have been published since this time. These resources explore the history, theology, and other aspects that have formed and inform the current understanding of the United Methodist Deacon. These resources are available in the library and/or freely online.
Freely available online resources are indicated by an asterisk at the end.
