Deacons, by the stirring of the Holy Spirit, proclaim the radically inclusive and challenging Gospel of Jesus through action, prayer, and prophetic word to call the church to action to enable the compassion and justice of God to be realized in the world.

Through its members, Anglican Deacons Canada (ADC) calls and encourages the church to respond to human need by loving service, to seek to transform unjust structures of society, to pursue peace and reconciliation, and to protect, sustain and renew the life of the earth. 

ADC supports deacons and aspirants to the diaconate and educates the church about the role of deacons in the ministry and mission of the Anglican Church of Canada.
