The LDA is an independent, multi-Lutheran organization that forms, sends, and nurtures communities of deaconesses and deacons, and supports the whole people of God in Christ's call to serve. Through a process of education and formation, LDA students study theology, practice hands-on ministry, grow in their own spirituality, and become members of a lifelong community of deaconesses or deacons.

This collection contains various publications from the LDA through the years.
