We Are Deaconesses

We serve…

…on the mission field.
…in the congregation.
…in the preschool.
…beside the hospital bed.
…in the women’s shelter.
…in the nursing home.
…in the soup kitchen.

Anywhere you can find people, you can find suffering.  Anywhere you find suffering, you’ll find a deaconess bringing Christ’s love and mercy.  As a deaconess graduate from CTSFW you will join a sisterhood of women who have devoted their lives to acts of mercy for the sake of God’s people around the world.  The needs are great, but our God is still greater. May His mercy ever overflow through us.

And let the deaconess be diligent in taking care of the women; but both of them ready to carry messages, to travel about, to minister, and to serve, as spake Isaiah concerning the Lord, saying: “To justify the righteous, who serves many faithfully.”
