The National Deacon Intensive will run from February 1-5, via Zoom (a decision made due to the unpredictability of border closures due to C-19, which prevented a face to face gathering this time). 
There are 11 candidates – from WA, SA, Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales. Please pray for them during this week. 
There are also many Deacons from all over Australia participating in leading and sharing in sessions. Thankful for their generosity! 
Regular updates during the week will be posted on the DUCA Facebook page.
