Regional Presentation on DIAKONIA

September is the time when CCS program staff travel far and wide doing field orientations.  In between working with students and their learning facilitators and local support committees on the expectations of a CCS field placement and how to get the most out of the learning experience, program staff occasionally take part in regional gatherings.  This month Ted is traveling to Alberta and to Ontario.  While there he will be inviting people to learn more about the World DIAKONIA assembly that took place in Berlin this year.

The Alberta gatherings (Ontario details still to be determined) will be:
