Center for Deacon Education
In partnership with Wesley Theological Seminary
To provide deacon education and ordination for people of the United Methodist faith in the Carolinas, Pfeiffer University in conjunction with Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C., established in 2006 a Center for Deacon Education, an intentional resource for those called to the ministry of the deacon.
Courses offered through the Center for Deacon Education are specifically designed to prepare persons for ministry as deacons. In the United Methodist Church, the Order of Deacon leads the congregation in its servant ministry and equips and supports all baptized Christians in their ministry alongside the order of elder, which focuses on word, sacrament and order.
