During a period of discernment, we listen for the call of God on our lives.  The Deaconess-Home Missioner Discernment event is an opportunity to explore God's call to vocational ministry as a Deaconess or Home Missioner of The United Methodist Church.  During these 2-3 days, we explore scripture, hear and share call stories, and learn what it takes to be in relationship as a Deaconess or Home Missioner, all in a retreat-like setting.
