The UCY Student Deacons at the Yale church date back to the 1920’s, when becoming a deacon was senior honor. Today, the student deacons are both undergrad and grad students. They serve the church by being its “eyes and ears” on campus, helping the church understand how best to serve Yale students today. Deacons also take leadership roles in worship, community service, and all UCY programs.
Student Deacons are selected through a process of prayer and discernment each Fall Semester and serve renewable one-year terms from January-January.
