Interview with Rev. Dr. John Denninger

Program Introduction with Rev. Dr. William Harmon

Welcome to the SED Lay Deacon Program! We are excited that you have taken the time to prayerfully consider participating in this new training. In partnership with the Mission Training Center (MTC), it is designed to equip and empower men and women for Kingdom service within your congregation and beyond as an everyday missionary in love and service to your neighborhood and community. The vision of the SED Lay Deacon Program is to raise up God’s people for service within the Church and beyond as everyday missionaries to their neighborhood. 

Jesus says the harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. (Matt 9:37) The SED Deacon Training is a great way to answer our Lord’s call and join Him in what He is doing today!
