Proposed Competencies for the Education and Formation of Deacons

The Board of the Association of Anglican Deacons in Canada (AADC) has been working since 2009 on a proposed set of National Competencies for the Education and Formation of Deacons in Canada. Our purpose is offer a set of competencies that each Diocese in Canada would use as benchmarks in the formation of Deacons in their individual programmes.

We wanted to try to answer the question, "Who does a prospective Deacon need to be, and what does a prospective Deacon need to know in order to be ordained to the Sacred Order of Deacons in the Anglican Church of Canada?

A copy of our work, to date, can be found at this link, Draft Competencies.   At the 2011 Conference the Board of AADC invited Deacons from across Canada to read the competencies and offer input regarding them. If you were not at the conference, please click on the link above, read the material and send your comments to The Ven. Archdeacon C. Ross.   Chris will discuss your comments with the Board and revisions will be made to the material. A draft copy of this discussion paper has been sent to the Primate and we will send the updates as they happen.
