Our Members

Membership of DOTAC is open to diaconal associations, sisterhoods, and orders in North America, the Caribbean, Central America, and South America who support the purposes and objectives of DOTAC. Each group shall determine the qualifications for membership in its own organization, but members of constituent groups must be “set apart” or “designated” to serve in diaconal ministry within their own denomination or association. Groups applying for membership must present written approval of their own governing body. Contact Noreen Stevens for membership information.
